This 9-page document includes 5 pages of information, directions, and instructions for faculty, advisors, staff, and editors, followed by a 1-page assignment sheet, and a 3-page checklist to ensure that the best material is gathered and created for each yearbook assignment.
Creating page assignments for yearbook students, staff, and editors can be fraught with problems. You have to give them enough information to complete the assignment, after all, it's very frustrating to send students out to cover an event for them only to return without everything they need.
These checklists and assignment sheets cover more than 60 topics that students need to adhere to while completing the page. From coverage at the event (including photography and interviewing, before event, during event, and after event, hidden spaces, and various photographic perspectives, among other issues), to writing about the event (including hook, captions, titles, and more), and design of the page (including layout, Photoshop, consistency, fonts, and more), the checklists will help to guide students, editors, and you to ensure the assignment is complete.
Additionally, a primer is included to help advisors, students, and editors to understand expectations. It's brief, but effective.
