A yearbook development project was designed to provide graduating General Educational Development (GED) program students with special recognition and praise for their educational accomplishments. A student committee was formed to have responsibility for the entire project from design to finished product. The committee undertook the following activities: drafted a letter to recruit participants; contacted students to make arrangements for pictures, autobiographical information, and writing samples to be included with pictures; contacted students and alumni for writings to be included in student and alumni writing sections; organized the yearbook into its final format; and delivered the yearbook for final printing. The student writing section was included to allow graduates to highlight their educational experiences and show prospective students the value of education and permit use of the yearbook as a recruitment vehicle for adult basic education classes. The alumni writing section helped form an important link between graduates and alumni. The 21 GED graduates and 7 brush-up students who participated were enthusiastic about and extremely supportive of the project. The yearbook was recommended as a prototype for other educators to use in developing their own yearbooks. (Appendixes include project correspondence, autobiographical information form, release forms, publicity, and the yearbook. Names, pictures, and written contributions of students and teachers are included.) (YLB)
