Education Research Projects
To Be on Display at UW-Eau Claire 

MAILED: April 23, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  Education students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of semester-long diversity research projects during the Spring 2002 Fed 385 Research Expo Thursday, April 25.
         The Research Expo, which will run from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Tamarack Room of Davies Center, will feature 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:

         "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, noting that this year the group is taking inspiration from Margaret Mead, who said that inquiry "demands the open-mindedness with which one must look and listen, record in astonishment and wonder that which one would not have been able to guess."
         The event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587 or send her e-mail at or contact Rhoades at (715) 836-3672 or e-mail her at
