Vettraino, Christina M.
English Journal, v96 n5 p25-29 May 2007
Finding few resources on how to teach a yearbook class, high school teacher Christina M. Vettraino set out to create her own. She offers a detailed, classroom-tested approach to producing an award-winning yearbook. Students on the staff and in the yearbook class learn the purpose and the concept of a unifying theme, graphic design, writing, and photography. In addition, they learn responsibility and professionalism by working under pressure and meeting deadlines.
