Organizing & Planning

Although we’re not quite ready to lay out this year’s yearbook, it’s a good idea to take a better look at last year’s, as well as some other books, and see if we can come up with some ideas for the one that we will put together. It’s never too early to get thinking and working on ours. Our decisions about theme and look will influence a lot of what we do, so hopefully we can put together some ideas and allow you some time to think about them, discuss, and formulate some possible plans for us. If we choose to go with a theme, here is a list of thought-starters that could help get you started: ThemeList

We will look at some samples of older yearbooks to see how the book has been laid out in the past.

You will get into a group. This group WILL NOT include the person sitting directly beside you. Mix it up a bit. I will give you some yearbooks to look through.

Take some notes about the following:

What, if anything, is the THEME of that book? (look for similarities & running looks/concepts among the pages)

Observations about the book (good, bad, indifferent)

What you like about the look/layout of the book

What you don’t like about the look/layout of the book

Tell Mr. Robson what's on your mind!
