The RISE Lab currently conducts studies to understand ways children’s schooling experiences and academic and social-emotional development is shaped by teachers’ emotions and behaviors and racial bias in schools. With collaborators at universities, the RISE Lab facilitates research projects that aim to understand how the perceptions and emotional language of teachers affect the racial climate of the classroom and the socio-emotional skills and development of their students.
