Yearbook is a one-year elective that produces the school yearbook, which will include the traditional printed book as well as multimedia. Members of the staff are expected to have a high level of maturity and the ability to work independently. This is a wonderful opportunity for members of the team to exercise their creativity, while developing new skills in computer design, photography, marketing, budget management, copy writing, and project management. Creating the yearbook is a fun process and the end result of all the effort is a product the students can be proud of long into the future. Students will be expected to develop skills necessary to effectively produce the yearbook. A strong commitment to meeting deadlines is required, including any necessary weekend or after-school work. The yearbook is a team effort, and good people skills are required. Grading will be based on a rubric that will measure students’ performance in areas including (but not limited to): planning, organization/time management, effort, level of engagement, creativity, skills and attitude. Students will also have the opportunity to design posters, tickets, flyers, and programs for Inspire events.
