    Advanced Journalism-Yearbook

    This journalism class is an advanced publications class that focuses on creating the CHS Wildcat yearbook.  Students learn how to design, edit, take photos, and market this publication. Students also learn to conduct a business from selling advertising to delivering a print publication that records the history of the school and lasts forever. Each year they add new technology knowledge as this journalism field is constantly changing. Currently, we are learning how to link Aurasma into our yearbook to create video links for different photos captured in our Wildcat Yearbook publication.
