Students in the Yearbook class, aka The Yearbook Squad, are the leaders and decision-makers of the yearbook at Love of Learning. This is an entirely student-driven class with guidance and support provided by me.


Students will learn basic principles of yearbook production and 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
  • Design cover
  • 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 the book
  • Advertise and promote
  • Establish and meet publication deadlines
  • Edit pages


Students will also design a logo for the 2022/2023 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 need a personal Gmail account.
