January 4 marked the official launch of the Michigan Learning Channel, created by Detroit Public Television and in cooperation with the state’s other public television stations. The Michigan Learning Channel provides supplemental programming to support learning for Pre-K to Grade 12 students, with a special emphasis on K-3 basics in literacy and math. The channel is also viewable at michiganlearning.org/live. The Michigan Learning Channel has commissioned new lessons in math, social-emotional learning and health and fitness, all of which are available now. A team of literacy education professionals selected the English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Learner (ELL) content being broadcast at launch and is hard at work on a series of new literacy programs featuring Michigan teachers, which will arrive by mid-March. Sample some upcoming program for Pre-K to 3rd grade at MichiganLearning.org.
