Wadsworth students photograph their day – 2021

Before students join the Bruin staff or the Whisperer staff, Wadsworth High’s newspaper and yearbook, they must take an introductory class called Newspaper/Yearbook 1. In this class, students learn the fundamentals of graphic design, interviewing, writing for print, and photography. Just like in the years past, students had to spend a few days photographing their school and neighborhood and tell the story of a typical day in their life, but through pictures. Here are some examples of the work they submitted this year.
