Course Description: In this course you will gain, develop, and master skills in one or multiple areas of the yearbook creation process. Whether you’re interested in page design or photography, copy-writing or marketing, or any other skill required to create a memorable yearbook, you’ll be able to come to class every day and learn by doing. Outside of developing these individual skills, we’re also working towards a single, shared goal: to create the most memorable yearbook Desert Jr/Sr High School has ever seen.
Course Philosophy: You will be challenged, you might very well stumble, but you’ll come out at the end of the year with new and improved skills and pride in the yearbook we create together. Quality work is an expectation in this classroom. Assignments are only complete once they’ve been added to the yearbook and approved; until that moment, you will have ample opportunity to redo work until it’s as good as it can possibly be. Regardless of your role, we will all work as a team. While your individual assignments are important to the success of our yearbook this year, your ability to work alongside your peers, collaborating in every stage of yearbook creation from brainstorming to proofreading, is the only way we can create an incredible yearbook together.
