HUMANITIES / YEARBOOK
Humanities/Yearbook (8th Grade)
The Humanities/Yearbook class is unique to Mesa Verde and is only open to current 8th graders. It is a three-period humanities block, like all other 8th grade humanities classes, but it is also responsible for creating the school yearbook. In the same amount of class time, the students in humanities/yearbook read core lit novels, write essays, study American history, and complete all parts of making a yearbook: design, layout, photography, writing, and editing.
The class moves fast, assignments often serve multiple purposes, to allow time for yearbook responsibilities. For all these reasons students must have strong writing skills, great organizational skills, and exceptional attitude about giving everything their best. Their work will be published for a public audience. To do all this, it is important the class work well together. We practice communication, listening, and problem solving through team builders.
