The student ideas list (“My Genius List of Things to Do & Be”) is a tool that we’ve found useful for kids who have a good idea but may lose track of it. This idea-catcher is also helpful in keeping up with what’s going on if they have several projects underway. And finally, it’s a good tool to promote some assessment and reflection and to encourage sharing results with others.
Here’s a visual of the simple form and an example that Denise has filled out for her own Genius Hour activities. Yes! She participates in Genius Hour, too, while also being available for consultation as needed.
