I-LABS in the Classroom: Module 05: Understanding Emotions

Horizontal tabs



All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington (I-LABS) is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to discovering the fundamental principles of human learning, with a special emphasis on early learning and brain development.

This hour long class covers the following points:

  • Children take cues from other people to guide their emotions and behavior, especially in new situations (social referencing).
  • Children even learn from interactions they’re not directly involved in – they pick up on emotional states of others just from watching and listening.
  • In their second year of life, children begin managing their own emotions or behaviors (self-regulation), often using others’ reactions to guide their actions.
