You’re Not My Typeface, Teaching About Type

This year, I’m going to start my yearbook class off with design.  I usually leave it for last, as in the best for last.  But I notice that often my yearbook kids get bored with writing and struggle with photography.

So if I am going to begin with design, then this site should be a great help when I get to discussing Type.   It has a great deal of information on typefaces, grids and other printing info.  It even has a section just for teachers with a bevy of great handouts in PDF format.

So, even if you are not going to start off with design – you’ve got to teach it some time.
