PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Genius Hour” is a concept derived from Google’s “20% Time” where employees were given 20% of their work time (paid) to work on projects of their own interest. This time gave us Google products such as Gmail, Google Maps, Adsense, and Google Talk. In fact, it’s estimated that approximately 50% of Google’s products came from ideas developed by employees during their 20% time!

Genius Hour allows students time to work on projects that THEY are interested in, while at the same time building and developing their “21st Century Skills”: creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, citizenship, and character. It also helps students build grit, tenacity, and problem solving skills. By having students choose their own topics, you are guaranteeing their interest, and motivation to succeed.

For the past few years I have been running Genius Hour in my own classroom. I am continuously amazed at the depth and quality of my student’s work! This isn’t just “teacher bluster” either! I can honestly say that all of my students are engaged and working during our Genius Hour times. Students often to choose to work on their projects when they have free time, or at recess and lunch.

This Resource Pack includes:

- lesson suggestions to get started
- Genius Hour Process posters and headers
- 8 class countdown guideline poster
- Project Proposal and Planning worksheet
- student Daily Log worksheet
- student After Project Reflection
