Madison Garrett leads a group of Cleveland Road Elementary School students in a writing exercise

The UGA English Department's Writing Intensive Program, directed by Dr Lindsey Harding, brought a group of Cleveland Road Elementary School students to campus this spring to work with the department's undergrads and to engage in a writing workshop of their own. Dr Harding has been working all year with these students, who are enrolled in the Clarke County School District's English to Speakers of Other Languages program, helping them improve their written English skills. English major and WIP intern Madison Garrett says that it's good for these students to see writing as something they can do for fun, while the students' teacher at Cleveland Road, Lori Garrett-Hatfield, is delighted to see the improvement in her charges' writing abilities.
