Do you want to know more about Genius Hour?
Visit our blog at http://geniushour.blogspot.com .
Listen to the Voki, check out other blogs and the wiki on the right side, and read past posts (starting in February, 2012) to see why Genius Hour was implemented in our class, how it has changed over the months, and what our students are accomplishing. Also visit the LiveBinder for parents and teachers. This shows the rationale for Genius Hour, and what it means to different teachers.
If you would like, follow hash tag #geniushour on Twitter. Teachers involved in trying to incorporate Genius Hour into their school days meet the first Wednesday of each month at 8pm C.S.T. on Twitter using the hash tag. Teachers from around the U.S. (soon to be around the globe?) conduct Genius Hour their own way, with what works for their schedules and their students. You may notice I use ours for our independent reading aspect of the curriculum, and I have big dreams for it...
