It’s definitely challenging when put on the spot to think of a series of yearbook questions to ask your students. Striking a balance between informative, interesting and answerable isn’t always easy. Try to pick yearbook questions with the widest appeal to your students and mix it up between quick-fire questions and open-ended questions to
I went to a very inspiring talk yesterday by Leon Logothetis, star of the Netflix series The Kindness Diaries. He radically changed the path of his life on a mission of kindness. During his personal account of the chain of events leading up to his decision to leave his desk job, I started thinking
Since launching our website’s online chat we’ve had many requests for help with yearbook quotes. Keep in mind you want to say something you’re happy to put your name to. Once it’s printed in the yearbook there’s no escape, that quote will be seen by friends and their families for years to come! If
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.
This may be one of the more controversial yearbook ideas, but you should probably let your teachers have a say in the yearbook too. We find that sometimes, they can actually be quite funny.
You can either let them say anything they want for their yearbook quotes, or ask them to stick to a theme.
Earlier this week I found the article linked to below, written by an Edublogger about teachers signing their students' yearbooks.
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.
