The U.D. For Kids program ran three weeks this summer at the University of Dubuque. One of the classes held was "Read All About It!” taught by Jeff Dyer, teacher at Sageville Elementary School. Students in the class learned the basics of journalism, reporting and photography. They reported on other classes held on (and off) the U.D. campus during the week of July 8-12thand created all of the content on this page. Special thanks to the following Telegraph Herald staff members who visited the class as guest speakers and provided invaluable advice to the student reporters: Anthony Frenzel, Eileen Mozinsky-Schmidt, Jessica Reilly and Mike Day. Thanks also to U.D. For Kids Coordinator Cheryl Werner for her support and assistance.
