Welcome to the Urban Literacy Clinic!

Our goal is to address the literacy needs of kindergarten through 12th grade students in the metro-Atlanta area while providing practical experience to Georgia State students training to be literacy leaders in their schools.

Our Clinic

The mission of the Urban Literacy Clinic at Georgia State University is to prepare teachers to enrich the literacy lives of students in the Atlanta community through individual and small group lessons in reading and writing. The teachers prepare and implement research based literacy lessons designed to capitalize upon each child’s literacy interests while strengthening their academic abilities.


Work in the literacy clinic is an integral piece of the Reading, Language, and Literacy M.Ed. program that prepares literacy leaders in schools.
