The third annual Race and Social Justice in U.S. History Research Symposium will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Davis High School Library, 315 W. 14th St.
Twenty-five research groups spread over five sections of of the course have been working since the beginning of the school year on identifying an American problem relating to either equality or diversity.
First, groups had to research the historical background of the problem. Then, they had to prove that the problem exists on a local level. Finally, they have proposed workable and feasible solutions.
At the symposium, each research group will present their findings on research boards, and two have been chosen to make formal presentations. Their topics are “Student Perceptions of Teachers” and “Pressure and Stress in DSHS Students.”
Visitors can see the research and discuss topics with students during an open house from 5:30 to 6:40 p.m., when the presentations will begin. Light refreshments will be served.
