Resources for #GeniusHour

Five years ago, I imagined a classroom where passion driven work was the norm; one in which students were invited and expected to experiment with ideas, discover possibilities, and make epic things happen. This dream is now a reality. When we create a time and space for our students to strive audaciously and connect and collaborate with others, their genius is liberated, and learning, lives and worlds change.

Below is a host of resources to help you launch #geniushour in your classroom.

Genius Matters is a free, day-by-day lesson plan for the first 20 days of implementing genius hour.
