Cartoon of Indians watching Pilgrims arriveThe elements of a good research poster session range from comfortable shoes (if you’re a presenter on your feet for hours) to free refreshments (great coffee, those miniature chocolate cupcakes). Even more important, though, is a catchy poster image.

This cartoon, with its message about different cultural perspectives, will be on the poster presented by Professor Gisela Ernst-Slavit at this Friday’s WSU 2011 Academic Showcase in Pullman. The title of her presentation: “Othering” in Elementary Social Studies: A Critical Analysis of Teacher Talk. Gisela’s research partner, doctoral student Michele Mason, won’t be on hand, but Michele explained their work for the WSU Today article, “Teacher’s word choices can reinforce stereotypes.”
