Education Research Projects
To be on Display Nov. 29
MAILED: Nov. 20, 2001
EAU CLAIRE — Education students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of semester-long diversity and education research projects during the Research Expo to be held Thursday, Nov. 29.
The Research Expo, which will run from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center, will feature displays of individual and group projects designed by 110 students enrolled in the Social Foundations of Human Relations course, taught by Dr. Cynthia Gray-Mash and Dr. Katherine Rhoades of the Foundations of Education department. The event has been held each semester since the fall of 1998.
The projects introduce students to research as it's applied to the understanding of cultural complexity and reflective processes that strengthen professional practice in teaching and other professions. Students select topics, develop methodology and venture into communities to study culture, using ethnography or probing into issues of diversity and discrimination in and beyond Eau Claire. Projects include:
- Islam and Reaction to September 11
- Inside a Rave
- Breaking the Stereotypes of American Indian Culture
- Exploring the Alaskan Culture
- Exploring Children in Poverty
- Gender Bias: Fact or Fiction
- Public School Students Speak Out on Racism
- Concerns of Hmong Youth
- The International Student Experience
- Multicultural Curriculum in a Wisconsin School
- Music: A History of Discrimination
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587, or Rhoades at (715) 836-3672.
