Cox Campus recently hosted a webinar along with Greg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski, authors of When You Wonder, You’re Learning: Mister Rogers’ Enduring Lessons for Raising Creative, Curious, Caring Kids, for a virtual discussion about the science behind Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Exploring the science behind Mr. Rogers’ iconic television program, When You Wonder, You’re Learning, reveals what Fred Rogers called the “tools for learning”: skills and mindsets that scientists now consider essential. These tools—curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and more—cost next to nothing to develop, and they hinge on the very things that make life worthwhile: self-acceptance; close, loving relationships; and a deep regard for one’s neighbor.
With insights and practical advice from thinkers, scientists, and teachers—many of whom worked with Rogers himself—the book explores how kids and their parents can excel at what Rogers taught best: being human.
This event shares insight from Mr. Rogers and how his work and messages of equity, inclusion, and honest conversations with children are still relevant today.
