I am switching from teaching middle school art to art at the High School
level and would like some input as to how you structure your year,
mainly pre AP, art 1 & 2 and intermediate art 1. If you have some
lesson plans to share or any ideas I would love to hear from you.
I also taught yearbook at the middle school level and also used
photoshop and InDesign, but we were totally digital. If we received hard
copy photos, we scanned them and put them on our server. I'm not sure
what you're looking for, but we used Jostens yearbook service and they
have an entire book of page set ups, which were very useful. They also
include a Jostens YearTeach tool bar that has a lot of shortcuts on it,
made specifically for yearbook production, verses magazine production. I
used as many bells and whistles as possible and really enjoyed it.

Another Great set of prints up for auction on ebay. (Worth $185.00)
They are a great selection of images.
I bought two sets for school. The prints were put out by Davis for the
A World of Images & Art: Images and Ideas series.
Not my auction, but hoping other art teachers can use a good deal. I
not get these on my budget they would probably be the first thing cut by
hope this helps, Christine Besack :)

I am in charge of our high school yearbook. It's a big book (240
pages) and represents the whole school (as opposed to just
seniors). right now we've managed to make it nice and organized but
very formulaic. does anyone have any great examples of yearbooks or
good ideas? I'm not working with a yearbook company and not
interested in doing so. I teach the kids Photoshop and InDesign and
we print locally. I'm also not really wanting to go the digital
route but if anyone has any success with that I'd be interested in
