Our research group explores how children's ability to understand the mental world of self and others within the context of social action affects their learning and social experiences in the classroom. We investigate how children learn to read and make sense of the people’s thoughts and feelings, and how this ability may influence how they think and feel about themselves while interacting with their friends and teachers in schools. We are especially intrigued with exploring how gender and language play a role in the development of children’s social and emotional understanding.
