Genius Hour in Elementary

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, I would introduce the idea of Genius Hour in the younger grades (K-5). Genius hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school. I piloted 'Genius Hour' last year with my 2nd grade class at Bluff Park and this year all of 2nd grade and 4th grade class will be participating at Bluff Park. I will give a multitude of resources and ideas for making the big ideas of 'Genius Hour' seem manageable. I will walk through the process, give examples, and many helpful hits along the way. Genius Hour has made a lasting impact on my students and our school as a whole. My hope is that this idea will make its way to all elementary schools in Hoover and therefore will benefit all our students in the district. For more information, view the quick video of Genius Hour from my students last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLxVeoRiNWU
