Genius Hour/

Student Choice Projects

All students can benefit from choosing a “genius hour” or “passion project” and dedicating time to expanding their learning on the topic each day.

  • Students select a topic of high interest such as learning to skateboard, creating a biography of a favorite video game creator, discovering a new travel destination, learning a new language, etc.
  • Each day students learn about the topic via online research, youtube videos, blogs, or podcasts.
  • Students can keep track of their learning by creating their own screencasts or blogs.
