At this point, your team should be established. If you have not already filled out a Team Planner, that is priority today. Your editor and chiefs will be checking in with each individual team member this week to see if you are on track to meeting your deadline, and to offer help and guidance.
Priority #1 should be getting photos to build your page. The yearbook is all about photos which means this is your first priority for quality and timeliness. Make a list of photos you would like to see captured.
Priority #2 RESEARCH layout designs, and build a draft on the paper grid paper.
Priority #3 finding supporting elements like captions, quotes, and short stories.
Priority #4 assign team members duties and create obtainable deadlines.
* * Your plan for all of this should be on your Team Planner for myself and your editors and chiefs to see.
We need a photographer to travel with the nursing pathway students.
Let's do it! Work with your Editor, and Editor and Chiefs to find pages that you can take charge of. You will collect all necessary material for these pages: Articles, Photos, Captions, Layout ideas. Once all material is collected, create a folder in our shared Yearbook Google Drive and put everything in there. Our layout team will put it all together for you.
Alright, so grades have been posted. Many of you already met with your Editor in Chiefs on Wednesday and got feedback. Now is your chance to discuss this with your team members and editors. Grab some hot chocolate and get to talkin'!
Let's all get on the same page when it comes to color. We can use the link below to create a color scheme. We will all use the same HTML codes when we edit backsplashes, or insert colors into our yearbook, this will include our cover art as well. In the end, having consistent colors, fonts, and layouts, will give our book unity.
Team Evaluations: End of this week
At the end of this week, you will be asked to participate in team evaluations. Your Editors in Chiefs will explain more in class. This will be similar to a performance evaluation you would have with your boss at a job. Your boss would schedule a meeting where they tell you what you are doing well, and what you could improve. This is also your opportunity to let your boss know what support you need to do a good job, and to ask for help in getting to place you want to be in your career.
Take a look at the slideshows below. Which theme do you prefer? Your layout editors will present examples of each to the class this week, and we will take another vote.
