Yearbook is an intensive, deadline-driven course where students create a commercial-quality memory for the school using TreeRing.com. No experience necessary to take this course.
Week 10: March 27- April 1
School closed - Online instruction begins April 1
ONLY TWO yearbook members bothered to add captions with names to their pages. I was very disappointed to find so many pages unfinished. To finish the book, please follow the instructions below EXACTLY.
If we ALL work on this, we will have a relatively decent yearbook.
- Go to TreeRing. Any page that is not green is available to you to edit.
- Do NOT change ANY photos or layout - just add names. If you want something changed - EMAIL me. I will adjust the layouts to accommodate the captions.
- Select ANY page that is not greenand start adding ANY names that you can as captions underneath photos
- Continue going through the pages and adding names. Even if you only know one name, that is better than nothing.
- For names on the sports pages, refer to the rosters on the Stats pages (following the each sport)
- Caption format is: 8 pt, Ariel, Flush Left
- Do NOT share the yearbook with anyone outside your family
- EMAIL me and report what pages you worked on. Be specific. If you don't email me, I will assume that you didn't bother with this vital task and I will grade you accordingly.

are the results of the survey
Look at the ladder
. Pages have been assigned
- Go to TreeRing and start looking at the Shared Photos that have been uploaded. Look at ALL of the photos by clicking on EACH individual pic irepresentation. You will discover that the representations on screen are completely different than the photos that you will actually be placing on the page. If you are signed-up to do a page, as you are viewing the pics, TAKE NOTES on which images you want to use! TAKE the TIME to thoroughly look through the selection. Laziness makes for a bad book. If you do not take the time, please know that Durkin knows EVERY photo and will redo your page (much to your detriment) if you have been too hasty (or biased) in your choices. The yearbook is about featuring EVERY student in the school, not just your friends. Sounds harsh, but it's true.
- Talk to the photographers - including Ms. Durkin - about what photos you envision for your page. We will do everything we can to fulfill you wishes.
- When you select the photo(s) that you want to use, the first, and MOST IMPORTANT thing that you must do is: CLICK ON TAGS (it will say 0 tags). You MUST enter the correct name of EACH person in the photo. If you do not know, ASK other people in the room!
- Questions? ASK for HELP. No worries. I am here to make you successful and proud of your pages. II have NO hidden agenda. My goal is ONLY to make the best, most fair yearbook possible.
ASSIGNMENT: Time to design a page! Ms. Durkin will show you how it's done and then you will all make your own page using the photos available.
- Pay attention to Ms. Durkin's presentation on page layout
- You will be assigned a 2-page spread
- Your Page Assignments (for this task only) HERE
- Use ONLY the photos available in the Cross Country file.
- You MUST have the team photo as the largest photo on the page. Add other photos as desired but remember to try and get every team member on the page twice.
- Read the CRAP Poster
- Read the Page Design Rubric
- Look at the Contact Sheets of the Photos available and make note of the photos that you want to use.
- Place and Resize the photos. Add pretend captions below EVERY photo. 8 pt Myriad, line height: 1.1
