Goal

The primary goal of the Yearbook Team is to produce a school yearbook that is a cherished and treasured for years to come. Additional goals I have for my team is that students will learn the basics of writing, editing, designing, marketing and most importantly, photography. Lastly, it is always a goal of mine to teach students to work cooperatively with each other, learn time management skills and practice responsibility, and have fun in all they do. 

 

What will be done with my students

Pinecrest Elementary is a Leader-in-Me School. As a LIM School, all students in grades 3-5 have the opportunity to join a Student Leadership Team. The SLT I facilitate is the Yearbook Team. Students who join my team are responsible for creating the school’s yearbook, which requires learning about layout, editing, and most importantly, photography. I make it a point to teach my students the basics of photography and provide them with guidance and feedback that can turn them from a "multi-photo taker" into a beginner level photographer. My students are not only curious, but keenly interested in developing their skills and learning more about photography. Understanding that photography is more than just “point and shoot”, I explain to them about the camera operation and provide feedback on their techniques and photos. Students learn that photography and the camera world is based on a rich combination of art, science and technology. They also will become familiar with fundamental terms like lens, shutter, focus, flash, tripod, crop, zoom and pixels. The photos are saved on an SD card that can be used to transfer the photos to a computer. 

 

Benefits to my students

My students will benefit from working on the Yearbook Team because they will be learning skills in all areas of yearbook production. The team roles are listed below:
• Writer: This team member covers the event stories and provides content that fits the program's editorial guidelines (word count, credited sources, photo captions, etc.).
• Editor: This member reviews all of the yearbook content prior to printing.
• Photographers: They take high-quality photos at all of the school events and make sure that there is good representation of each grade level.
• Designer: They design your yearbook pages and make decisions about the layout.
• Marketer: They help spread the word, sell the yearbook and manage all of the marketing and sales campaigns (social media, fund raisers, flyers, posters, etc.).
• Synergy: Students will learn and practice their social skills as they work together as a team to produce the yearbook. Students have responsibilities as a team and help other team members when they need it.
• Responsibility: Students will have particular responsibilities, which they will need to meet. They will learn how to manage their time, set goals and meet deadlines.
