Students in the Yearbook class, aka: 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 from 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 sampling of what students will do in this class:


  • Develop a theme

  • Design cover

  • Create master designs

  • Set up type specs and graphic elements

  • Determine story ideas

  • Determine photo ideas

  • Set up story and photo assignments

  • Organize sale and distribution of books

  • Advertise and promote

  • Establish and meet publication deadlines

  • Edit pages

All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
