Thought I'd share a couple minutes of a 45 minute presentation by a student of mine who shared her horse etiquette expertise. She really showed her knowledge and passion for her horse! :)

This is a ridiculously awesome resource for teachers wanting to try Genius Hour in their classrooms! Nicole has done an amazing job putting it together - clear, straightforward and easy to understand. I strongly recommend checking it out as I am sure you will find strategies you will want to try yourself.

Started Genius Hour with my classes today with great results already! In our brainstorming session, students came up with the following potential ideas:

1. develop potential outcomes as to what happened to the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

2. develop potential reasons why people change their behavior within certain groups

3. determine the effect on a historical event if a key element was removed e.g. WWII - if the machine gun did not exist

These are just some of the great ideas my students came up with today - this is going to be exciting. :)

Does anyone know where I could find quantitative research on the effectiveness of Genius Hour or passion-based learning? It will more than likely be linked with student motivation. Qualitative research is also appreciated. :)  Thank you!

Hello from Kamloops, BC Canada! My Socials 8 and 10 classes would love to connect with other classrooms from around the globe. We are in the PST time zone. The best times are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons but we are are flexible.

The first ever Genius Hour Google Hangout was a success! So successful that I forgot to record it! So sorry everyone!  If you are interested in learning alongside of us, please join us the last Wednesday of every month. Resources will be posted as well.
