Genius Hour

Genius hour is an enrichment program for cycle 2 and 3 that allows our students to explore their own passions. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school. Once a week for an hour the students get to work on their passion projects. This allows students to take ownership in their own learning. They spend several weeks researching the topic before they start creating a product that will be shared with the class/school/world. Throughout the process the teacher facilitates the student projects to ensure that they are on task.
