*Product includes: detailed expectations, blog expectations, assignment/blog project rubric.
**This activity/project stems from an idea presented while at a conference in Atlanta, GA.
Task Summary: Students will be exploring multiple intelligences independently through an activity that will be called a Passion Project. Students will have designated time on Fridays, or to be determined day, to work on this student-driven project. The only parameter in terms of boundaries will be projects that would be considered school appropriate. Use best judgment. Passion projects has spawned things such as GMail & Google News; it has been referred to as Genius Hour.
Purpose: Explore multiple intelligences with various formats. A Passion Project can consist of an actual project, or it can consist of what a student would like to learn more about.
Objectives/Outcomes: At the end of each semester, student will need to give a possible presentation based on what project consisted of, or what student learned about. Student Google Slide or Prezi Presentation should consist of a bare minimum - who, what, where, when, and why. This is not something that’s formal. This is all about personal growth!!!
***Student will track their progress via a Blog Assignment with Writing Expectations
