DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — Twenty-seven University of New Hampshire social science students are learning to crochet in the course of learning about shaken baby syndrome and relationship building.
Professor Kate Hanson says she's committed to using community engagement in her lessons and devoted two classes to teaching the 20 male and seven female students how to crochet.
The students are assigned to crochet two baby caps each by Oct. 1 to benefit the New Hampshire Children's Trust and its "CLICK for Babies" campaign to educate new parents about normal infant crying.
The purple caps will be delivered to new parents in November and December, along with information about shaken baby syndrome.
Hanson says the hands-on project helps teach students about social and political norms, values and laws.
