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 lay out the 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 scheduled, especially as we approach deadlines.  Emphasis will be placed on learning to work as a team, goal-setting, working with a budget, time management and task completion, as well as producing and marketing the yearbook.  Fundraisers are a required part of this class.  Students will be expected to secure advertisements and participate in any other class-determined fundraiser.  Grades will be based on attendance, fundraising participation, quality of work produced, and deadlines met.  There is an optional yearbook conference at student expense that may take place during the summer for additional training.  Commitment to FUN and hard work are mandatory as the class prepares the yearbook, anticipated by the entire Connections’ community.
