“Monitoring the Future 2022”

University of Michigan Logo

The University of Michigan’s Survey Research Department has selected Iman Academy as a research site for its study “Monitoring the Future 2022.” The study will monitor the school experiences of older Middle and High School students.

Students will be asked questions such as, “how important is religion in your life?” Research has indicated that religion can serve as a protective factor for substance use.

Other questions may include “How many hours do you spend in an average week on homework,” “Which describes your plans after high school?”, etc.

All research is funded by the National Institute of Health and conducted by The University of Michigan, Institute of Social Research.

Exploring Energy

Student looks into an optical triangular prism.

Students explored the different forms of energy (light, electrical, mechanical, thermal, sound, and mechanical) and how they can appear in one object.  They had the opportunity to see light energy using a crystal optical triangular prism. They also discovered how the potential energy becomes kinetic energy when a force is applied. Our students determined through their experiment that mass influences how much kinetic energy is released even if the same force is applied.

Peek inside the classroom, watch a short clip of our students and their scientific observations below.

Word Scoop

Students in Grade 1 understand that by repeated, frequent and consistent reading they can become fluent readers. They also know that using expressions and voice tones make reading more fun.

In this video, First Grade students learned to scoop up words and say phrases rather than reading word by word.

We are so proud of them!  Way to go first graders!
