SCHOOL OF EDUCATION: LEARNING INITIATIVES FOR FAMILIES AND EDUCATORS

The Learning Initiatives for Families and Educators (LIFE) Project was developed by a U-M School of Education faculty team to create opportunities for elementary education teacher certification program interns to learn from the families of the children that they teach. Through multiple family home visits, interns learn to build positive, collaborative relationships with diverse families and develop communication skills that allow them to serve a broad range of students. The program takes place at Scarlett Middle School in Ann Arbor and is one of many initiatives of the Mitchell Scarlett Teaching and Learning Collaborative, a partnership between the U-M School of Education and Ann Arbor Public Schools that is entering its fourth year.
