Genius Hour s a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school. To kick off Genius Hour, we had Shark Tank Day. Students planned their Genius Hour projects. Then, they wrote a persuasive speech to explain why their project is a great Genius Hour project. We even played the Shark Tank theme song as the students walked up to the stage. The shark (aka Mr. Vesco) asked questions after each speech. I am happy to say that all Genius Hour projects were approved!
