We thought it was about time to unleash another edition of ‘Most Likely To…” yearbook award ideas. If you missed the last post of suggestions, take a browse here. Dedicate pages of your yearbook to these awards, or incorporate them into you profile pages (ideal if you’re using a question/answer format for your student comments). Coming
A blank page can be scary to some. Where do you start when writing your yearbook comment, or quote? Leading questions are a great way to guide your fellow year group.
You've probably thought of the obvious ones, like 'nickname', 'most memorable moment', 'favourite colour', 'what will you be doing in 10 years time?', etc. so we've gathered a few more ideas to help you expand your student, teacher and primary yearbook profile questions.
Student profile pages (which usually consist of each student's photo and a comment, arranged into tutor groups/classes), make up the bulk of most yearbooks. If you are pressed for time - or have a very large year group - then you could choose to have the student photos with names above or beneath only and no individual comments. You can then get a whole form group onto one double page spread - saving cost as the yearbook will have less pages. It will also take less time to put together as you don't need to collect in the individual comments. However, it does make the yearbook more personal if there is a comment written by each student to appear next to their photo and it's the perfect place to record people's aspirations for the future - there are several ways of presenting and collecting profile page comments.
Teacher pages are a great introduction to student pages in your yearbook. Many schools begin their book with a message from the Headteacher/Principle followed by messages from a select number of teachers. Tutor pages often precede their tutor group’s/class’s student profile pages offering an ideal structure to the yearbook. But why include teacher pages at all? Tutors, teaching staff and other school staff are a big part of school life and experience so don't forget to include them!
Your yearbook committee has asked you to write a comment for your yearbook profile page, but as soon as you sit down to write something, your mind goes completely blank! What do you write about? How do you begin? Don't worry - help is at hand.
