We kicked off Genius Hour officially yesterday!
I think the students are a mixture of scared and excited. They are scared with the amount of freedom and unknown involved in this year-long undertaking. They are also excited to be given time to explore the topics of their choosing! Ahhh..... the beauty that is Genius Hour!
We spent some time watching 2 videos (1 & 2), and then brainstorming about topics of interest.
Next week the plan is to narrow those topics to 2 to present to Mrs. Looper or I in meetings on the 20th.
