At launch, the Michigan Learning Channel will provide curriculum-aligned instructional lessons and resources, beginning with Pre-K to 3rd grade programming Monday through Friday.

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.
