Session Detail

G/T Genius Hour Book Study
6 hour G/T Update

Join ESC Region 12 as we embark on a six-week online book study of Andi McNair’s book, Genius Hour: Passion Projects that Ignite Innovation and Student Inquiry. This book provides educators with the tools that they need to successfully implement genius hour, or passion projects, in the classroom. Presented through an easy-to-follow six-step strategy, teachers will utilize the six P's-passion, pitch, plan, project, product, and presentation-as a map for students to follow as they create, design, and carry out projects. Students will experience personalized learning through these self-driven projects, application of standards and real-world skills, and opportunities to learn through failure and reflection.

Important Session Information:

This six week, instructor led book study will take place via a Canvas course. Participants will be assigned specific chapters to be read, questions to complete via a discussion board with optional live Zoom meetings for discussion twice during the book study. Participants will need to pay a materials fee to receive a paperback copy of the text, Genius Hour by Andi McNair, to be picked up at the ESC the week prior to the book study beginning. Pick up times will be announced. *Gifted and Talented Co-op members attend at no additional fee.*
