Progress is imp…

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
– George Bernard Shaw

This is very true in education, but change is scary.  We, my co-teacher and I, have decided to implement Genius Hour beginning after spring break.  A detailed description can be found here:  http://www.geniushour.com/.  Basically the students get an hour every week to work on a project that they choose and are passionate about.  There are few guidelines:  it has to involve research, it has to be approved by the teacher, and they have to share their finished project with the class.  This seems like a fabulous idea, but I am still unsure about how this will go…

  1. This is a WONDERFUL opportunity for your students. I imagine that they will be in love with it and the work you will see will be stellar. Be sure to keep us updated!

  2. Our district recently started to work on the concept of Genius Hour for the teachers. We’ve had one so far, so I’m interested to see where it goes. Good luck with yours!
