Dr. Christopher Martell of the School of Education has an opportunity available for 2-3 students to help with data processing for three studies. The first study examines how secondary social studies teachers teach about race and ethnicity in their classrooms. The second study examines how elementary teachers learn to teach about race and use historical inquiry with their students. The third study examined how secondary teachers teach about gender. The UROP students would be involved in transcribing data (primarily interviews), where they will listen to an audio file and write down the dialogue as text. This would require about 2-3 hours of work a week. No experience with educational research necessary. However, ability to type relatively quickly is a plus. UROP students may also choose to get credit as a directed study, where they would use the data to create a research paper or! poster. Kaylene Stevens, a doctoral students and graduate research assistant, is also a principal investigator on two of these studies.
