Interested in incorporating Genius Hour into your curriculum? I did and I've posted here a full outline, progress tracker and marking scheme. The marking scheme has the students names removed but I left the numbers in to show you how I recorded their progress. Everything I used for my classroom's Genius Hour Project is included. It really is the ultimate inquiry project. The goal was to have my students become experts in something they are passionate about then created a website and TedTalk to display this passion for the class. It fostered learning, collaboration and inventiveness as many students learned skills like video creation and website design on top of the information gained about their topic. The files I've uploaded are fully customizable. Experiment, change and do whatever you like to them to make the project suit your classroom and grade level. This project I feel would be great from early elementary to upper years high school with just a few modifications here and there. I've written a post on my experience which can be found by - BY CLICKING HERE
Included in the lesson package is:
- The project outline
