Yearbook members are responsible for accurately covering the major school events and functions. They must also create a publication that the student body can cherish for a lifetime. This course is an elective that requires a commitment. Students are requested to attend after school meetings during the course of the year. The course involves layout design, writing, and editing, computer/graphic design using InDesign CS3 and PhotoShop CS3. The course emphasizes responsible work habits while allowing the young journalist the opportunity to learn and grow through this hands-on process. Students learn more than yearbook fundamentals. They learn: time management, become self-starters, delegate responsibility, demonstrate knowledge, share resources, and motivate co-workers. Students are expected to sell advertising and participate in fundraising.
