Check out this great Jostens website to help spread the love of yearbook...
If you and your staff are looking for fresh ideas for this year, Jostens and I have the website for you and it's available to anyone, even those not currently working with Jostens...
This is a fantastic website that debuted two years ago, featuring many different types of posts and items designed for your yearbook use. And if you have a class, absolutely check out this awesome resource.
Note the ten different topic areas included, covering all areas of yearbooking. You want some great material to use with your class or club? You'll definitely find it here.
And the items included are extensive - PDFs to download, articles, PowerPoints or videos to watch, notes and tips, it's all there. And while many items are yearbook-centric, you'll also find exercises and activities directly tied to Common Core and 21st Century Skills. One example...
Storytelling Photos- Here's one of my favorite subjects, telling more stories via better images. The activity includes a complete lesson plan with Common Core and 21st Century Skills tie-ins, a PowerPoint presentation to show examples of great storytelling photos, some great activities to help teach the skills, and an exit ticket to show what your students have learned.
There is also an extensive set of archived stories and materials to search and a long list of yearbooking and journalism categories for use by any adviser at any level. Check it out!
Now THERE'S something that anyone will be interested in. And it's another reason why a well run yearbook or journalism class offers students great educational opportunities. Find the search bar on the Yearbook Love page and enter Common Core or 21st Century to see the postings connected to these topics.
Check out the website today and be sure to bookmark the site because this is one you should visit frequently. I've also added the link to the site here in the website links in the upper left column. It's a chance to really FEEL THE LOVE of yearbooking!
