Print: Centerfold Assignment

Creating a Spotlight Page

ASSIGNMENT: In groups you will work to design, write and create a centerfold on a topic of your choice.

Each Spotlight page must contain:

  • Article
  • Image
  • Infographic

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: Your group will be responsible for all of your page’s content including photographs, infographics, surveys, cartoons, copy, etc. Your editor will oversee your work, and guide you along the way. (S)he will edit all written articles. You are responsible for meeting all regular deadlines; every layout, rough draft and final draft deadline still apply to spotlight.

TOPICS: May range from fun to serious, but must have a school-related angle. Before settling on a topic, make sure it’s something that students do care about, should care about or need to know about, and that there is a way for you to include the student body in your content (through quotes, polls, surveys, photos, etc).

GRADING: Each centerfold group will be graded as a whole on the following:

  • Design
  • Creativity
  • Coverage
