Undergrad wins top prize for integrated approach to education
A naval officer-turned elementary education major took home one of two top awards at the 10th annual student showcase of research projects Friday and Saturday.
Undergraduate Byron Bass' project, "An Integrated Hands on Approach to Learning," focused on tying together subject areas. While student-teaching a third-grade class, Bass, 52, had his class dig up artifacts buried in the playground. The class then drew bar graphs about what they found and wrote a fictional story about how the artifact ended up there.
