First year yearbook staff learn how to develop an action plan, conduct interviews, write journalistically competent copy and captions, take quality action photographs, and complete layouts which include photos and captions, and graphic elements. Students learn to use professional graphic design and photo editing software and supporting technology and how to manage file storage and prepare those files for publication. Students learn ethical and responsible use of Internet resources and practice principles of sound journalism. Students work cooperatively to set and achieve goals, organize time and tasks to meet deadlines, develop and adhere to a budget, and problem‐solve in order to publish a product for a school audience. Students may enroll more than one year; second and third year students are eligible to become editors or editors in chief. In some circumstances, first year students may serve as editors with teacher permission. This is an elective course for practical experience/computer, or language arts credit. 10LA - LA Elective9th Grade students may take this class with advisor permission. 10th;#11th;#12th;#1 yearLanguage ArtsN/ANohttp://contenthub.bvsd.org/curriculum/Course%20Catalog/Yearbook%201.docx

In addition to regular page assignments, Yearbook 2 students are also eligible to serve in a leadership position, either as an editor, business manager, or in some other capacity where they have additional responsibilities beyond Yearbook 1. Second year staff members who become section editors plan coverage for their section of the yearbook, design layouts, and work closely with staff completing pages for their section. They edit and complete their section, producing pages that are ready for publication by deadline. They attend regular editor meetings, keep detailed and accurate records and lead by example, coaching first year students. Second year students who serve successfully for two or more semesters are eligible for an academic letter in Yearbook. They may take the course for a third year where they are eligible to become editor in chief. 10LA - LA Elective10th;#11th;#12th;#1 yearLanguage ArtsN/ANohttp://contenthub.bvsd.org/curriculum/Course%20Catalog/Yearbook%202.docx
