Introduction of Curriculum
How to use our Curriculum

Dear Yearbook Friends, 


United Yearbook is passionate about partnering with advisers to help teach the yearbook staff. We intend for our curriculum's Instructional Guides and modules—Curriculum Presentations to be used by advisers and not simply given to students. These guides were developed to provide information and resource materials to advisers as they establish their classroom instruction. We've included lesson plans and learning activity examples within each Instructional Guide. Although we hope you will find these examples helpful, they are not meant to replace the day-to-day work of a classroom teacher. Click here to read our frequently asked questions.


Happy Yearbooking!

    Our team of yearbook representatives cares about seeing your publication come to life from start to finish by walking alongside you. We provide expert knowledge in all things yearbook publishing. We know that advising is tough, and we are readily available to answer any questions no matter how big or small. A few team members were previously yearbook advisers for many years and have brought their firsthand experience to the team. Many of our initiatives are made by advisers for advisers!
  • What are the steps involved in creating a yearbook with United Yearbook?
    Your first step is to meet with a member of our team to review online design software and samples with treatment options. We would also be happy to provide you with a custom proposal! You’d then sign a contract based on an order quantity that can be altered up until one month before the final submission. As part of the United Yearbook family, you will have access to our design software with year-round technical support and training for no additional cost! We offer a multitude of workshops throughout the school year and summer break for no additional cost. Your file of the cover will normally be due 6 months before the final submission deadline. Deadlines are based on the size and page count of the yearbook. During the school year, we can help you plan your cover reveal party. This is a fun experience for those who have purchased their yearbook. Once your yearbook has been finished you will submit the entire book to us before or on the day of your final deadline. We understand that selling the yearbook can be difficult and will help with online marketing to boost your sales! Finally, we will deliver the yearbooks to your school, and you can distribute them from there.
  • Do you offer customizable solutions?
    United Yearbook is known for our ability to customize each yearbook publication to fit the yearbook staff's vision of their innovative ideas. We do not believe that one size fits all when it comes to yearbook publishing. As mentioned before, we know that each adviser will have different needs and will work with each adviser to fill them. If the curriculum is lacking at your school, United Yearbook has the resources necessary to help you. Alternatively, if marketing is difficult for you, United Yearbook will help tailor a marketing plan for your school to make your yearbook a success. Some of our clients have expressed how our online purchase link has been a great asset for them in their yearbook sales! This may differ from school to school or even from year to year. We aim to fill those areas that need extra guidance and realize that certain needs will not be the same for every school.
  • How do your services set you apart from other yearbook publishers?
    We offer high-quality, innovative yearbooks at a price that schools can afford. Our yearbook approach is to tailor our process to your needs. We care deeply about your yearbook publication and live our mission statement to walk alongside you throughout the entire yearbook process.
  • What are the customization options for yearbooks?
    We love this question because we offer many customization options as well as the ability to think outside of the box. Customization options include, embossing, debossing, gatefold, foil, spot UV, & more. We also encourage our advisers to create without limitations. Some of these innovative ideas have led to surfboard yearbooks, double-sequin yearbooks, heat-sensitive yearbook covers, even interactive scratch-off yearbooks, and many more. Create without limitations at United Yearbook!
