With the last day approaching fast, Newspaper InDesign finishes up their assignments and prepares to present final projects to their class. Over the days, after learning some new tricks they incorporate their style and personality into their complete five assignment final. With some of the pressure lifted off their shoulders, the last day brings some mixed feelings about leaving.
“If I could stay an extra day or two, I definitely would to learn some more about InDesign because not all of my classmates are here. Just taking some of the little things that O’C has been teaching us back with me is really helpful.” Megan Yatooma, from Mercy High School, said.
Although the students have explored the in’s and out’s of InDesign, some students are a little weary from the intensity of MIPA. “I’m just ready to go back to school, and used what I’ve learned. I really like that I know what I’m doing and that I’ve learned how to setup an actual page.” Kierra Fillwock from Niles High School said.
Sara-Beth Badalamente, the instructor, also confirmed that she personally takes some material out of her class. “Just seeing how much someone can progress and regress in one week, so i know that when i go home there is a light and the end of the tunnel for anyone. There is nothing that can compare to such intense 5 days of using one topic, and to become an expert at it, there is nothing that compares to MIPA.” Badalamente said.
