Dedicated to Detroit

By teaching young people that
reading can be fon, WeRead - a
Universicy studenc organization
- is helping Detroit-area youth
develop skills in reading, commu-
nication and creativity.
The club, which has about 10 to
15 dedicated memheru, commuteu
to Detroit each week to read and
bond with elementary school stu-
dents. Members of the club can also
choose to write oi design aspects
of their very own children's hooks,
which if selected as the best in the
group, are mass-produced at the
end of the school year for Detroit
students.
Business junior Ciera Rickman
said contrary to structured tutor-
ing, the commuting members focus
on allowing the students to enjoy
themselves. This is often achieved
through reading comprehension
activities that give young students
the opportunity to demonstrate

their creativity.
"Our mission is to make things
fun," said Rickman, who is one of
the club's members. "We want to
get (kids) excited about reading,"
Rickman said the group's work
is paying off, adding that she has
seen kids choose reading over
activities that are often thought to
be more enjoyable, like watching
movies or playing games.
Each week, classes of about 35
to 40 children are broken up into
groups of four to six students, and
these small groups are paired with
mentors who encourage everyone
to read aloud. After finishing a
story, the group participates in a
meaningful comprehension activ-
ity.
Participation from every stu-
dent in the group is important,
Rickman added.
"We encourage the kids to help
each other," she said.

This year, che group plans to vol-
unteer at the Henderson Academy
in Detroit, With support from the
school's principal, Rickman said
the group may be able to extend
the amount of time it spends at the
school each week.
A second division of the club
called FUSION also has plans to
expand its influence, Rickman
said. Members of FUSION par-
ticipate in creative writing activi-
ties with older students, and this
semester, FUStON plans to work
with a wider variety of grade lev-
els.
Rickman said she has been par-
ticularly proud of the progress that
WeRead has already made, which
she described as "astounding."
"Last year, over 90 percent of
our students were on the honor roll
after we were done working with
them," she said.
