CT Program Profiles - We looked at program data to create our graphs because that is data that is relevant to us. For students, consider local statistics about the school system, housing market, or crime statistics.
Statistics for Action - Here's a source of materials designed specifically for adult education. We looked at Memorable Graphs from this TERC site, but there's lots more to explore!
Figure This! NCTM's Figure This! Math Challenge #70
Many Points Make a Point is the EMPower series book that contains "Sketch This" the graphing lesson. You can check out a TIAN project teacher talking about her class' use of the lesson here.

200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes - a dynamic view of what graphing can demonstrate visually.

“What is Procedural Fluency, and how do we help students develop it?” - NCTM's position
Here's one reason we have to have a large 'bag of tricks' to pull from to teach adult students: "Research suggests that once students have memorized and practiced procedures that they do not understand, they have less motivation to understand their meaning or the reasoning behind them (Hiebert, 1999)."
