Class Starters to set you up for success

Written by Mike Taylor, CJE

Whether you are a new adviser or a veteran, you know the value of getting your staff working the moment they walk in the door. We wanted to help you do just that. Over the last several years, Walsworth Yearbooks has hosted more than 50 informative webinars covering dozens of topics, each with guest presenters and a wide range of resources. Using this vast  collection, we created our latest resource, a library of Class Starters and quizzes. Yearbook advisers across the nation can use the information provided in these 10-15 minute educational videos for the start of class.

These videos provide helpful yearbook information in small digestible chunks, allowing teachers to take attendance and answer the questions that happen before every class, while their students are engaged in learning. All Class Starters will come with a three-to-five-question quiz located in Google Forms that students can complete and turn in, either for a grade or for participation points.

Getting access to the Walsworth Class Starters is easy. Once an adviser signs up here, the Class Starters will be accessible throughout the year. We will continue to add more, so check back often for additional helpful content.


Topics include:

  • Yearbook terminology
  • Cover production
  • The printing processes
  • Leadership
  • Boot camps
  • Club picture day
  • Coverage
  • Headlines
  • Homecoming coverage
  • Trends
  • Ladder
  • Deadlines

Sign up today to get access to this valuable resource!
