WDE 5th Grade and College Turkeys
November 23, 2019
In the continued effort to promote college readiness through AVID, Advancement via Individual Determination, WDE 5th graders created “college turkeys” to represent their teacher’s college choice. Mr. Stafford’s class represented the University of Florida, Mrs. Garrett’s represented Troy University, Mrs. Currid’s choice was Northwest Florida State College, Ms. Dickey chose Southwestern Oklahoma University, and Mrs. Bush’s class choice was Louisiana State University. The students researched information such as the tuition, special programs, clubs, and the different sports that the college offers, the mascot, colors, and what academia interested each student individually about the teacher chosen college.
