First 30 days of the year are vital, and we have a plan

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Before you know it, the new school year will be here and for advisers it will be time to begin the process of teaching their staff everything they need to know to create amazing yearbooks.

First 30 Days – Online Design

First 30 Days – InDesign

Walsworth Yearbooks has developed a plan that will help get the year off to a strong start with the First 30 Days lesson plans, based off our Yearbook Suite curriculum and other educational materials.

The First 30 Days is available in versions for Online Design and InDesign. The lessons are broken down to the specific day, for those who want that guidance.

The Yearbook Suite provides short lessons that dive right into yearbook activities to get students thinking and creating, while the Using Online Design and Using InDesign manuals will help you become more familiar with the software you’re using.
