IBCA offers students the opportunity to demonstrate computer and Internet literacy. It is an excellent starting point for learning basics of computer and Internet functionality. They will engage in many activities that will assess and analyze their computer skills. IBCA builds a solid foundation for further advancement in the technology sector, and gives individuals the confidence needed to be a successful part of today’s digital world.
Students will produce a culmination publication of memorable school events following a designed and organized plan to develop a permanent piece of school memorabilia. Concepts that are emphasized are the use of technology via computers, internet, and digital photography. Students will also value the use of teamwork and organizational skills. “Yearbook” is an elective course that gives students marketable experience in print media publishing. This course solely works toward the completion and selling of a large finished product, Lutcher High School’s yearbook. Yearbook class is different from every course taught at this school in that it is a real business maintaining an account that must balance-out at the end of term. In class, students compose, construct, and edit all elements of computerized text layout, graphic art, and digital photography. Students work on many clerical operations, make announcements, maintain signs, conduct student polls, and will assist Romaguera when it comes to Lutcher High. Because “Yearbook” is a monetary business, students must cooperatively work with others, must be industrious, and be eager to be creative. Out of class and after school, students will “shoot” digital photos, sell and design advertising, and disseminate yearbook order forms. Students are responsible for the proper care and handling of our digital cameras.
