I have been exploring Genius Hour and love passion which comes from those who implement it. I would like to to implement Genius Hour in my new school with the year 5/6 students. We work in two pods of 3 teachers to 90ish students and are challenged with ensuring each pod gets the same experiences. Does anyone have any experience running a Genius Hour Programme with 180+ students? How to manage to ensure everyone is engaged? Any observation templates or surveys used to manage the group? I have experimented using Trello with 50 students when completing group work but would love to hear from more experienced Genius Hour pioneers.

Anyone who has experience with Genius Hour in groups of students age 16 to 20 years old?

If anyone is looking for a Genius Hour project for grades 2-5, check out my 10 week design thinking unit! I am looking for other classes willing to try it out and share their results with my class. Good luck! http://bit.ly/2k0KUgW

So happy to have found this community! Beginning an enrichment program this year for Kindergarten through grade three. Looking for any advice/ideas from anyone who has worked with this grade level before...very excited about this new position but a bit intimidated as well. Thanks!

Hello, Genius Hour Community! I have been grappling with how to do Genius Hour within the context of middle grades math, specifically grades 7 and 8. I heard a podcast with A.J. Juliani about a community that is solely for Genius Hour and math. Can anyone assist? Also, does anyone have any ideas or thoughts about Genius Hour within the context of middle grades math? Thanks so much!

As a tech coach, I was so excited one of my teachers wanted to try Genius Hour projects in her classroom.

So much of school is what students have to know. What if students could bring what they want to know and it could merge with the standards of what they need to know?

I'm launching genius hour next week with my fourth graders! Please send any lauching ideas my way!

Does anyone have a system for having students self-evaluate for each 20% time session? I was thinking it would be great to have a way for them to monitor themselves, say a score from 1-5 for each session, and a brief summary of how they spent the period (e.g. exploring possible topics, taking in new information, planning the presentation, practicing, helping/giving feedback to a friend...) I imagine there is a way to do that with Google Forms and Sheets but I am fairly clueless with those tools.
