My Students

Writing a love letter to a school each and every year can be quite a daunting task. The yearbook is a mixture of images and words, constructed in a way to tell a story. Every student, sport, and organization has a story to tell...and my students spin the yarn of their legacy.

Our students study journalism, advertising, marketing, photography, public relations and management in one single class...publications.

These students are creative, determined and self-motivated to produce a phenomenal publication. The students are residents of a suburban community just east and across the lake from the city of New Orleans. The school was incorporated in 1982 and was the fourth high school to serve the clientele in our area. It began as a school for approximately 800 students and has increased in population to its over 1600. The school population has grown exponentially since Hurricane Katrina.

My Project

Our students will capture the legacy of the school they want to remember. Using the computer, the students will create a publication using plenty of genuine memories and avoid posed photos all together. Memories are best captured when the subject is unaware that a photo is being taken. Students will write great story-telling captions to enhance the great photos of motion and emotion, action and reaction. Well written copy, captions and proper photography skills will offer students an opportunity to see there is a special kind of magic in promoting and telling the story of an event, person and/or a school. Given the experience of proper sequencing in publications, students are exposed to the career paths related to a degree in mass communications, journalism and photography. Additionally, students will see the magic words and images have on an audience and the power related to transporting readers to a time and place.

Incorporating a new computer will promote the students to be familiar with industry standards commonly used in the medias.

Applied learning catapults student involvement to a higher lever and promotes exploration of college and career paths. Due to the lower socioeconomic demographic of our school, our students would benefit greatly from this exposure to quality tools used in professional publications.
