Ready-to-Use Resources for Genius Hour in the Classroom provides practical advice and a wealth of hands-on resources for teachers to implement Genius Hour, or passion projects, in the classroom.
Developed as a valuable standalone resource and as the perfect companion to Genius Hour: Passion Projects That Ignite Innovation and Student Inquiry, this book has everything educators need to help students apply their learning and reach levels of deep understanding. Students will engage with the six P’s of Genius Hour – passion, plan, pitch, project, product and presentation – with built-in opportunities to gamify the process to increase critical thinking, creativity and engagement. Students can ‘level up’, earning badges and points, as they create, design and carry out projects and develop ideas that affect their classroom, school, community and world.
Through the tools and tips provided, teachers will see Genius Hour as more than an hour, more than a strategy or activity separate from the regular curriculum. When implemented effectively, Genius Hour can be a more meaningful teaching and learning experience than any other.
