Learning by teaching others

Jeffrey Stanzler is the director
of the Interactive Communica-
tions and Simulations group in
the School of Education. Stanzler
earned his Master's degree at the
University and has been teaching
for 20 years.
What do you teach
at Michigan?
I teach educational technol-
ogy, and I also run a project that
does web-based simulations and
writing projects where college
students mentor middle-school,
high-school and, in some cases,
elementary-school students.
Where do students do

these type of projects?
My students do their work
wherever they choose to -
they're working with students
in actual classrooms around the
country and around the world,
so there's a password-protected
website where they're interact-
ing with their students.
What has been the best
thing you've learned while
working at the University?
It's important, if you can, to
retain your humility. Whether
you're older folks or younger
folks, we're always learning
and if you stay open to that, my

experience has been that life is
happier and more interesting
than if you figure that you've got
everything figured out.
Any advice for students?
I know in my class situa-
tions, students are a little more
reticent to ask questions. But,
I think in a bigger sense, the
willingness to ask questions
indicates that we have a natu-
ral curiosity. If we're not care-
ful, school can kind of squash
that curiosity, so I think that it's
important for people to honor
that curiosity and view it as a
strength and not a weakness.

Patriarch will visit new Pope

Police look for answers in crash

Eastern Orthodox
attendance at Papal
inauguration will be
the first in history
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Bar-
tholomew I, the spiritual leader
of the world's Orthodox Chris-
tians, will attend Pope Francis'
installation Mass - the first time
a patriarch from the Istanbul-
based church has attended a
papal investiture since the two
branches of Christianity split
nearly 1,000 years ago.
Bartholomew said he is doing
that to underscore the impor-
tance of "friendly ties" between
the churches and expectations
that the new pontiff will advance
rapprochement efforts that
began decades ago.
It's asentiment thatmanylead-
ers of other faiths are expressing
ahead of Tuesday's installation,
which is drawing dozens of Jew-

ish, Orthodox and other Chris-
tian leaders to Rome for the start
of a pontificate that is poised to
deepen the Vatican's ecumenical
and interfaith efforts given Fran-
cis' namesake and own history.
Those who knew Jorge Mario
Bergoglio as leader of Argentina's
Catholic Church say promoting
interfaith dialogue was at the
heart of his view of the what the
Catholic faith should be about -
an outward-reaching, bottom-up
effort to improve lives, no matter
what people's faith.
"He's the one who opened the
cathedral of Buenos Aires for
interfaith ceremonies, like when
we prayed for peace. He's not
one of those who waits for you to
call them to participate in these
events - he promotes them,"
Buenos Aires Rabbi Alejandro
Avruj told The Associated Press
on Monday.
Bergoglio brought Jewish,
evangelical Christian, Greek
Orthodox and Muslim leaders

into the Metropolitan Cathe-
dral to pray for peace in the
Middle East. Last November, he
welcomed Jews for a joint ser-
vice on the 74th anniversary of
Kristallnacht, the night in 1938
when nearly 200 synagogues
were destroyed, Jewish shops
were looted and tens of thou-
sands of Jews were sent to be
exterminated in Adolf Hitler's
He also sponsored interfaith
prayers after Pope Benedict XVI
offended Muslims in 2006 by
quoting a Byzantine emperor
as saying some of the Prophet
Muhammad's teachings were
"evil and inhuman." Rather than
criticize Benedict directly, Ber-
goglio let a lower-ranking priest
lead that service and did not him-
self participate.
Bergoglio also shared happier
moments - such as lighting the
first candle in a Jewish Hanuk-
kah ceremony in December, his
latest interfaith act.

California police
hypothesize that
faulty steering wheel
caused race accident
Authorities are investigating
whether a faulty steering wheel
caused a California raceway
crash that killed two people,
including the young cousin of
the teenage driver, officials said
The Yuba County Sheriff's
Department is looking into wit-
ness reports that the detachable
steering wheel came off just
before 17-year-old Chase John-
son's car careened off the dirt
track and crashed into pit row
Saturday evening, Undersheriff
Jerry Read said.
"It's shaping up to look like a
mechanical failure, but there's
still work to be done," Read said
about the investigation.

Race car owner Dale Won-
dergem, 68, of Grass Valley and
Marcus Johnson, 14, of Santa
Rosa were killed by the collision
at Marysville Raceway Park,
about 40 miles north of Sacra-
mento, officials said.
The accident occurred
when Chase Johnson and sev-
eral other drivers were doing
warm-up laps on opening day
of the California Sprint Car
Civil War Series. No one else
was injured in the crash, and
spectators were never in jeop-
ardy, according to the sheriff's
Marcus Johnson's father, Rob
Johnson, said his nephew Chase
told him the wheel detached
from the steering column as
he was heading into a corner
at about 90 mph, according to
KTVU-TV. The car hit a sloped
wall, launched into the air and
crashed about 150 feet from the
track, striking his son.
Johnson said the car was

brand new, so he believes some-
thing in the steering wheel's
quick-release mechanism failed.
"He had no control of the
car," Johnson told KTVU-TV. "I
don't know how it could come
off. He always double-checked
it just to make sure it was down
tight. He wasn't careless."
Rob Johnson, who lives in
Santa Rosa, said the two cousins
were close friends, and Marcus
had been helping Chase in the
pits during races for three years.
"The two of them were
just peas in a pod. They'd do
everything together and enjoy
every minute of life together,"
Johnson said. "He was one of
the sweetest boys you'll ever
Friends and family gathered
at Marcus Johnson's Santa Rosa
middle school on Sunday eve-
ning, where they remembered
the 8th grader as a passionate
basketball player who loved rac-
ing cars.
