A course in yearbook journalism has two primary objectives: (1) to teach students the skills required to create the book and (2) to produce a book which reflects journalistic standards. In order to accomplish these objectives, yearbook students will devote their time to the following:
• Learning their rights and responsibilities as student journalists
• Gaining proficiency in desktop publishing with InDesign.
• Incorporating advanced design principals such as grid and mod design into the yearbook.
• Learning and using journalistic wiring techniques
• Developing student leadership and decision-making skills.
• Finding ways to include every student and staff member in the yearbook
• And most importantly, producing a yearbook that the students, staff, and community can enjoy for years to come.
