Yearbook  Starts at 12:55

Description: The Connections’ Yearbook is student-developed, with parental involvement, using a yearbook publisher and web based design service.  A wireless enabled laptop is required for each student for in-class instruction.  Homework during the week can be done on any internet enabled computer from home.  The students will plan, photograph, and layout the entire Connections’ Yearbook.  They will receive instruction in layout and design, web-based publishing, and digital photography techniques.  Having a digital camera available for use and experience in using one is a plus.  Approximately 2-5 hours of outside classroom time per week will be needed to photograph classes and activities, conduct interviews, and complete online projects, which will require students be self-motivated and able to work independently.  Additional training or work-parties outside of class may be necessary and scheduled, especially as we approach deadlines.  Emphases will be placed on learning to work as a team, setting goals, working with and learning about budgets, time management and task completion, and finally producing and marketing the yearbook.  Fundraising will be a required part of this class.  Students will be expected to secure advertisements and participate in any other class-determined fundraisers.  Students will receive grades based on attendance, fund-raising participation, quality of work produced, and deadlines met.  Students and parents must sign a contract making a strong commitment to remain in the class for the entire year and participate in the success of the yearbook, anticipated by all of Connections.  Having fun in this class will be mandatory, as well as the eating of chocolate.  Email the teacher (rebeccacalvo.yearbook@gmail.com) to discuss this class further.
