I have been a middle school yearbook advisor for the past five years. I was in yearbook all through high school and even for a year in college. I generally create stuff for my students as we need it. If they need help with theme development I google it or create it. This year I had 23 new students. We were pretty much starting from scratch. So, I’ve been creating a lot of new materials.
This end of quarter self review was created to help students see and reflect on the work they actually accomplished. This helps them to understand why they received the grade they did, if they earn a grade for the class, or why they aren’t being asked back to the club the following year.
Please check out my other yearbook items.
A veteran yearbook advisor might use this activity as a supplement to an existing problem with layout design. While a new advisor might see this as a starting point when one feels lost without a clear direction. I’ve been there. It’s hard to start something new.
This activity includes the following:
* The End of the Quarter student self review activity for your yearbook class or club!
* A link to my Google doc to create a fully editable copy for your classroom.
I hope you find this to be a useful resource for your middle school yearbook group or classroom!
