The EiJ Research Sketchbook provides scaffolding for students' case study research and writing. There are sketches for each quesitons. The sketches are worked on collaboratively in Google docs. The sketches provide content for each case study question, including various figures pulled from the data resources they explore in their sketches.
We're developing Sketch Guides for each sketch See this (in construction) EiJ Sketch Guide: Charting Community Assets and Vulnerabilities. The goal is to teach students to creatively access and use publicly available data, recognizing the limits of all data, and how proxy data can work.
