Yearbook Design and Publishing


This course is a one-credit course driven by student collaboration with rigorous work to learn design programs, attend school events, and meet deadlines throughout the year. An understanding of strict deadlines versus due dates is crucial. Our goal is to create an exciting yearbook the student body is proud to have. Students learn to design and write for a 224 page publication, using Adobe software. Graphic design is at the heart of this class as we talk about color theory, photojournalism, page layout and design concepts. In addition, students learn about marketing and advertising principles to understand how our work matters to others. This course is great for those students who are self motivated and are comfortable within a team environment. Each student will be influential in decision-making about the creation and design of the yearbook. Freshmen and sophomores who are interested in taking Yearbook should consider Photography 1 and/or Illustration 1 to establish essential skills. Can be repeated for credit.
