Genius hour

What is Genius Hour?    

Genius Hour is something that will happen in our classroom for one hour a week.  During this time, students research and complete an inquiry project based on their passions - really digging deep into what motivates them.  They will be learning research skills, refining their organisational skills, reading nonfiction articles, developing questions, writing, preparing a project, and presenting it.  

We came up with a lot of ideas.  Look... 

We watched this pep talk.  it was very motivating!
