Genius Hour is a block when students are empowered to explore their own interests and passions. Both independent and collaborative learning opportunities are encouraged during these blocks and students are fully engaged in what they are learning.
This PowerPoint is an introduction to Genius Hour, scaffolding the steps that need to be taken over a period of 9-10 weeks.
Stage One includes students fully understanding what is expected of them and brainstorming topics of interest. It encourages them to share these topics with others and get feedback from their peers.
Stay tuned for weekly lesson plans, PowerPoints and videos that can be shared with your students as they journey through this challenge.
