Self-analytical Evaluation My experience in journalism has influenced me in many ways. I took on the role as a journalist by becoming a member of the San Marcos High School yearbook staff. My obligation to join this class was due to the suggestion from my freshmen year English teacher; she believed that I would enjoy the class and the major project of producing the school’s yearbook. Although I was involved in making my seventh grade yearbook, this one at San Marcos had a more significant impact on my work ethics. Through taking this class, I gained a greater understanding of how important it is to work as a team and be willing to help those around who are in need. When one staffer was unable to attend an event to capture pictures or get a spread done, it was vital for the deadline that someone else stepped up. Situations where others are unable to complete their fair share can get frustrating, but I have learned that everyone encounters times when they need to ask for help and it is the other person’s obligation to sub in. In order to get everything done, I had to make sure to work on time management and get connected with the people who I was interviewing and taking pictures of. Furthermore, this taught me how to communicate with people of various ages, such as players and their coaches, and what tone to use when discussing certain matters. As I continue through my high school years and into the rest of my life, I will continue to use these skills and reflect back on my experiences from yearbook class to assist me through future challenges.


Reflection #1 The spread I made for the San Marcos High School baseball team proved at the end of the year to be my most significant piece. This was due to the fact that it was the last couple pages I worked on in the 2013-2014 yearbook and the amount of effort it took to produce. At the beginning of the school year, when I first started working on the book, I had difficulty getting all the needed material for each spread in time, like the pictures, quotes, and body copy. During the span of this project, I figured out how to acquire everything in the given time limit and how to be positive that it looked presentable. Also, this particular spread is one of my personal favorites because of the team effort that was put into perfecting the piece. Earlier in the year, I had been overly focused on doing everything the way I envisioned it, but at this point I realized that it would turn out better if I brought in elements from my peers. In the finished product, there is photos from several different staff members that capture the different positions and angles of the players out on the field. Before the baseball season had begun, I looked in past yearbooks and got an idea of who would be on the team. Additionally, I got in touch with the coaches and asked for a roster of players expected to play on the team and the game locations and times. This gave me some time in advance to ask the members of the team questions and prepare my schedule to make it to the games. With the body copy done and most of the pictures taken at the very start of the season, I was able to fix anything that failed to meet my standards. Overall, I think these pages are my favorite due to the group effort to get them completed and the way I organized the process so it would not end in a


Reflection #2 The cross country spread, which was the first piece that I worked on in this particular yearbook, could use some work. At the beginning of the year, I lacked the ability to find ways to interview the runners without interfering with their practice times and busy schedules, but as I progressed in the my knowledge on journalism I was able to manage to get quotes from people in a time frame that worked on both ends. Furthermore, when working on this spread, my ability to use a camera and the techniques I knew were limited. As I began to understand how to change the settings and observe my surroundings for better picture quality, my photography skills greatly improved. Even just changing some of the positions of the pictures that already existed on the spread dramatically improved the appearance and made it be more pleasant for the viewer to follow along with the layout. If there was a way to edit these pages again, I would change the lighting and angle of many of the images. Looking back on the outcome of the spread, it appears to show effort to express the running season as a whole but lacks the quality that some of my later spreads contain.


Reflection #3 This is one of my favorite pictures I have taken for yearbook due to many elements. Personally, I think the blurred background makes it so the viewers have all their attention directed straight towards the main focus of the picture, which is the pitcher. Additionally, behind the player is a fence with bars that form a frame around him, again, making him appear as the main focal point. Through this photo, the viewer gets an idea of how the pitcher was feeling while in mid throw; he appears to have deep concentration on the person up to bat and is preparing to throw the baseball with dramatic force.


Reflection #3 This is another one of my personal best pictures from the 2013-2014 school year. This picture accurately expresses the emotion of the players during their rivalry game. As number thirteen leaps through the air in an effort to block the opponent from being able to kick the ball, they both ram into each other making neither one able to take further action on the play. Additionally, the viewer’s focus is on the players because the background is blurred.


Reflection #3 Personally, I think this picture contains many interesting features. It shows many different players on the two opposing football teams and their various positions. The photo allows the viewer to see where the ball is at while also knowing what the other offensive and defensive members are doing at the same moment. Through this, I think it gives a good representation of football as a team sport and makes it more intriguing to see several different people reacting in their specific positions.


Reflection #4 Yearbook class brought some challenges and hardships with it, but these situations have helped me to become a better problem solver and worker under pressure. Before taking this class, I had struggled with distributing the tasks in a group project with members working on it with me. Now, I have figured out ways to make sure that everyone is doing their equal share and, if this is not possible, how I can help pick up the slack. Additionally, this class put me several situations where I had deal with the faults that come with procrastinating. The constant awareness of the stress that procrastinating creates has taught me to work on portions of large projects over a period of time instead of in one night and how to manage time to make sure everything gets done. When reflecting on the rough experiences I encountered in this class, I feel like I managed the situations well and was able to get everything done in a reasonable amount of time.


Reflection #5 Before starting my year as a yearbook staffer, I set several goals for myself. One major goal was to stay on task and get everything turned in on time. I was, thankfully, able to meet this goal most of the time throughout the year. Additionally, I wanted to make sure that I would receive an A in the class, which so far I have been able to obtain this. Some of my goals were less academically related, such as wanting to get more involved in the school and meet new people. Fortunately, I was able to attend more sporting events and get to know the players on the teams; however, I plan on continuing to strive to increase the number of people I know in my future years in high school and throughout life.
