Day & Time: Tuesday 9:30-10:40
Mentor: Angie Gardner aka Frizzle
Students in the Yearbook class, aka: The Yearbook Squad, are the leaders and decision-makers of the yearbook staff at Love of Learning. This is a completely student driven class with guidance and support provided by me.
Students will learn basic principles of yearbook production, develop skills which include: writing copy, captions and headlines, digital photography, desktop publishing and using appropriate technology tools for media production. The following list is a sample of what the yearbook project includes:
Develop a theme
Create master designs
Create a workable ladder
Set up type specs and graphic elements
Determine story ideas
Determine photo ideas
Set up story and photo assignments
Organize sale and distribution of book
Advertise and promote
Establish and meet publication deadlines
Students will also design a logo for the 2021/2022 Yearbook Squad. The top design will be printed on shirts/sweatshirts and buttons for students on the yearbook squad.
Students are required to bring a laptop to each class.
I utilize Google Classroom for all assignments, communications, online discussions, and updates so students will need a personal gmail account. This makes it easy to refer to for homeschool teacher meetings, assignment details, due dates, and grades.
