Eastern Michigan University and WWJ Newsradio 950's Education Minute helps parents help their children succeed

YPSILANTI — Listening to the radio one minute a day can have a positive impact on your children.

Eastern Michigan University and WWJ Newsradio 950 have teamed up to create Education Minute, offering educational tips and advice to help parents complement and extend the learning their children receive in school.

 Education Minute will air daily, starting April 7, at 9:22 a.m., 12:23 p.m.; 5:40 p.m., and 9:53 p.m. Daily topics to be covered are Math (Mondays); Technology (Tuesdays); Writing and Reading (Wednesdays); Science (Thursdays); and Learning Beyond the Walls (Fridays). Each week will feature a different age focus ranging from pre-kindergarten to college.

The series also includes Web resources at WWJ.com for parents who want to learn more than what can be gained in a one-minute radio spot.

“This is an excellent opportunity to partner with Eastern Michigan University. EMU is the pre-eminent university for training teachers in Michigan’s classrooms,” said Georgeann Herbert, director of programming and E-publications for WWJ. “They are the experts on early child development and academic preparation.


Eastern Michigan University is a public, comprehensive university that offers programs in the arts, sciences and professions. EMU prepares students with the intellectual skills and practical experiences to succeed in their career and lives, and to be better citizens.
