FOR STUDENTS & TEACHERS

STUDENT WORKBOOK

The 168-page workbook provides interactive learning for each major component of a yearbook. It’s both entry-level and comprehensive at the same time allowing you to choose the lessons and activities that meet your students where they are.

ADVISER GUIDE

The Welcome to YBK Adviser Guide provides step-by-step guidance on each section of the student workbook. It offers grading guidance, discussion topics, extension activities, recommended virtual workshop sessions and so much more as you move through the workbook with your students. The Adviser Guide also gives suggestions for what you can skip if you have a club or just want to hit the basics.

TEACHING YEARBOOK HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER

We want you to see the whole picture of how we make yearbook education easier. By providing customizable resources, and layering on one-on-one guidance from local representatives and support from our customer service team, you’ll see the difference.
