Advanced InDesign for Yearbook implements personal ideas in projects

Lydia Cadena allows her students to weave their own personal ideas for their schools Yearbook in her sessions with the Advanced InDesign for Yearbook class.

In the class, a “common template” was passed around the classroom and the students were told to complete an individual, new spread in InDesign using that template.

“We are creating a common template for everyone to practice their skills that they already know in InDesign and practice new skills we’re learning,” Cadena said.

These strategies Cadena uses allow her students to express their own ideas rather than simply telling them to copy a spread directly to learn the inside and out of the program.
