Genius Hour - Passion Project
12 page booklet that will get your class started with Genius Hour.
Including presentation outline and marking guide matrix
Based on a concept by Google, students spend an hour a week in a learning experience that they design to match their personal passion. It is a great opportunity for students to develop expertise in an area that they may not normally study. Students select the topic, the learning, the product, the path to knowledge and the measure of success. During Genius Hour they will spend their time focusing on researching their question, learning, and creating a presentation to share with the class/ community/world.
Once the students receive approval from the teacher on their idea, they will explore information using the internet, books, library resources, interviews, etc. The presentations can be a poster, PowerPoint, video, skit/play, or any other approved presentation.
