Short Session Description: Starting Genius Hour with your Class
Full Session Description:
Are we giving students enough opportunities to be creative? Do they have time to learn about the things they are passionate about or the things that they wonder about?
I believe that a key part of fostering a love for learning is giving students some autonomy and some time to be creative! A great way to do this is by implementing Genius Hour! Genius Hour gives students the opportunity to develop their own inquiry questions and is a set time for students to work on their own passion projects.
We will discuss the research behind this type of teaching, as well as the practical aspects of setting it up!
