AEF Community Education Program The Sociology of Young Children — How Infants and Children Understand Their Social World Each year, the Appleton Education Foundation supports various educational programming with the goal of giving our students, educators and community new opportunities for lifelong learning. Together with our grant funding program, we are committed to creatively enhancing education for all! Please join us for our next featured speaker event! We’ve all heard that good social skills are nearly as indicative of children’s success as are their academic achievements. As Director of the Social Kids Lab at UW-Madison’s Waisman Center, Dr. Kristin Shutts brings her personal observations and insights about how infants and children learn to perceive, think about and interact with the world around them. For example: What do infants know about other people? How do preschoolers select playmates for themselves? When and why do children start to notice others’ gender and race? Dr. Shutts will address these questions and others by sharing findings from her research with infants and young children. This presentation is FREE and open to the public!
