+ Generating Ideas Digging Deeper How do we get past the same ol’ stories and the same ol’ coverage in the book? + Stop, Look and Listen Be aware of what’s around you When you walk into a classroom, take note of what’s in the room Walking from the parking lot, observe the cars In the hallways, read the bulleting boards In a store, observe the layout, the products and the customers While riding in a car, look at the billboards, the other drivers, the makes of cars, the bumper stickers Look at any object and think about what it means to you or a family member. What kinds of emotion does it provoke? LISTEN! What do you hear that brings about a visual? What sounds do you hear and how do you relate to them? + Let’s go on a scavenger hunt! You have 10 minutes Take a note book or paper and a writing utensil Take a walk. Do not talk to anyone. Observe your surroundings. Walk into classrooms. Read the bulletin boards. Look at the posters and visuals in the hallway. Look up. Look down. Write down 10 specific ideas that we could cover in the yearbook. Could be a quick read/module. Could turn into a larger feature story. Return to the classroom and prepare to share out your ideas.
