UVA Social Development Lab


The UVA Social Development Lab, directed by Sara Rimm-Kaufman, addresses pressing questions in education science from an interdisciplinary perspective.  Current projects examine how schooling and classroom experiences contribute to elementary school aged children’s social development and academic growth.  The lab, part of the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL), conducts collaborative work with the goal of providing a scientifically-based roadmap for educators making decisions for children.
