EAU CLAIRE — Education
students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of
semester-long diversity research projects during the Research Expo April 26.
The Research Expo, which will run from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Council Fire Room
of Davies Center, will feature 37 projects designed by 110 students currently
enrolled in four sections of the foundation of education’s "Social Foundations of Human
Relations" course, taught by Dr. Cynthia Gray-Mash and Dr. Katherine Rhoades.
The event has been held each semester since the fall of 1998.
Examples of research projects to be displayed include:
"Jazz Education as
"The Klu Klux Klan:
Youth Recruitment Strategies"
"The Juvenile Justice
System in Eau Claire"
"The Christian Youth
Movement at UW-Eau Claire"
"Depression in College
· "Antiquarian Culture
Clash: Studying Forgotten Peoples"
"St. Bedes Sisterhood"
"The projects introduce
students to research as applied to the understanding of cultural complexity and
reflective processes that strengthen professional practice in teaching and
other professions," said Gray-Mash, assistant professor of foundation of education.
"Students use various forms of inquiry as a tool to better understand diversity
in a changing world."
The event is free and open
to the public. For additional information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587
