Guidevisement

For my English class, we are each assigned a Do It Yourself project. This involves an individual or group project that helps us make a difference and inspire other people. We get every Friday of class time to work on it. We call this: Idea Farming. Idea Farming involves taking a seed, planting it, and eventually growing it enough to be fed. Our goal is to turn seed to feed. That’s what this project is all about. We want to use our class time and out of school time to accomplish this DIY mission. Why? So we can make our Junior year memorable and have a story to tell when we apply for college! Most importantly… so we can make a difference!

What is the difference I want to make? My project involves changing guidevisement to FUN guidevisement! My classmate, A.J. and I have created a goal to evolve the traditional long and boring videos regarding college readiness into new short and fun videos that make every student in every grade stress less!

    Our mission is to make Guidevisement entertaining and informative, without boring students to sleep. Powerpoints and four-year plan worksheets don’t work, but the collective talents of the BBN crew might! These 10-minute videos will show specific grade levels everything there is to know about college readiness.

Guidevisement in Ten is set to be:

  • once a month

  • each video is for a specific grade level

  • around ten minutes (because that’s how long our attention spans really are!)

Topics will include:

  • SAT/ACT/standardized tests

  • Grades

  • What Colleges Really Want

  • Letters of Recommendation, filing FAFSA, college applications

  • Scholarships

  • Majors and Careers

  • AP classes/tests

  • 2 yr college vs. 4 yr college vs. military vs. other options

We hope to change up Guidevisement for the better. Our ambition is make the videos as fun as possible and at the same time include an abundant amount of information regarding serious matters of college preparedness. The two sides of Guidevisement will be set to an equal balance. This is our DIY project and we will do our best to achieve this and create success not only for us but also for the students of FVHS.
