This is a technology class that assists students in learning basic photo-editing techniques and layout skills in order to take a yearbook project from idea to print. They will complete assignments from Lydia.com on how to use Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop. Under the supervision of the head student editor(s) and yearbook sponsor they will take photos of school events and use those shots in their layouts. It is a fun and exciting way for students to take ownership of capturing and documenting the school year memories in a visually creative way that will last a lifetime.
