BCJ 5th Grade TAGD - May 2020 Final Project

Eight Barbara C. Jordan Elementary School fifth-grade students in the Talented and Gifted Development  (TAGD) program had intended to continue work on an anti-bullying campaign at their school this spring (2020). Unfortunately, COVID-19 closed their school. But that did not deter the students and their teacher Wu Bakeman. As a Plan B, the students embarked on creating a joint video on ways to support one another through COVID-19.

Check out the final results of the work put in by students Tyler Brooks, Daunte Clement Gibraun Crawford, Journee Glasby, Kela Jones, Laila McGhee, Leah McGhee and Jamilyah Williams.

Not only does the video contain great music, dance and positive messages, but fun activities - including an awesome how-to recipe for whipped coffee by sisters Laila and Leah McGhee.

Bravo to Ms. Bakeman and her students!
