This resource is for teachers to aid students through the expeditionary and inquiry-based learning process of Genius Hour. Genius Hour is a passion project students can participate in using 20% of class time every week (about 1 hour). They will learn how to ask good questions around a topic they're interested in, conduct research, and ultimately produce and present evidence from their findings.Time frame: 1 hour per week every term (About 10 hours)Format: asynchronous, virtual, or in class with groups
Students should have autonomy in their learning and be given the opportunity to light their interest in learning about something that intrigues them. At times they don't know how to start this process or to do it effectively to find their answers. In this Genius Hour Introduction and Plan students will learn how to research, find answers and create a project that they can share with others to share what they learned while taking autonomy in their learning.
