Research Writing Field Trip

On November 15, a group of students from Kristen Getchell’s English 202 Research Writing class visited the Johnstown Flood Museum and the Heritage Center in Johnstown, Pa. Students read David McCullough’s The Johnstown Flood during the first half of the semester. Both museums gave students an opportunity to spend time exploring the history of the region and the devastating events surrounding the 1889 flood, and to examine research in its variety of forms.
