High School Students Play with Language at Penn State Altoona


Approximately 100 high school students from throughout Blair County got a taste of what college-level English classes are all about this past April. The students attended free workshops in writing and literature in the Community Arts Center. "Wordplay", sponsored and led by the College's English faculty, featured a variety of workshops, including "Reading and Writing with the Beatles", "King Arthur's Court of Love", "Going Haiku-ku: The Art and Nature of Haiku", "Thinking Like Thoreau, or Handwriting Analysis 101", as well as many others.
