3 FROM HIGH SCHOOL VISIT THE SUNPAPERS
High School journalism students Jamie Goodwin, Cindy Pfeffer and Diana Rogers represented North Harford High School at The Baltimore Sunpapers Workshop on Nov. 17.
The three Harford County students were among many other Maryland counties students who participated in The Sun's "Newspaper in Education Program." The program offered various sessions intended to supplement the students' knowledge of a professional newspaper and improve upon their journalistic abilities.
Students attended two 55-minute sessions, selecting from Human Writing, Graphics, Feature Writing: The Review, Copy Editing, New Angles on Sports Writing, Sports Reporting, Advertising, Newstalk, Reporting Simulation and Interviewing Techniques.
After the two sessions, students were evaluated on their high school newspaper from a journalist and from fellow students at a critique session.
