Denise and Gallit have developed a Creativity Rubric that they use in Step 3 of their Genius Hour cycle with students. It’s a work in progress, but you’re welcome to use, tweak and/or share! You can download it or visit the Google doc.
Using a 21st Century version of Bloom’s Taxonomy and applying their understanding of “thick and thin” questions (sometimes called google-able and non google-able), students can deepen their thinking about good inquiry-driven Genius Hour projects.
Gallit Zvi highlights a selection of videos that have inspired Genius Hour teachers and students. Included: Ken Robinson, Daniel Pink, Angela Maiers, Richard St. John, Derek Sivers, Kid President, and Caine’s Arcade. Watch them at the page and contribute some of your own favorites in the comments.
Denise Krebs shares a selection of inspirational books that have been favorites among many Genius Hour teachers and “changed us and our pedagogy.” Please share your own favorites in the comments area of this post.
Here are the easy-to-click links listed in the Notes section at the end of each chapter of The Genius Hour Guidebook: Fostering Passion, Wonder, and Inquiry in the Classroom. They lead to lots of resources!
