Genius Hour FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Genius Hour, Passion Project or 20% time, doesn’t matter what you call it.  Students call it “fun”, “exciting”, “entertaining”, and “my time to learn about what I want”.  This is not a free for all time. Students organize their materials, there are expectations and they are responsible to share their “genius” with the class.  As a teacher, I find Genius Hour time to be extremely engaging for students.  It gives them voice and choice in their learning while practicing real-world skills: Communicating, collaborating, creating, reading, writing, questioning, and critical thinking.  In this session, students will share their Genius Hour experiences with you.
