Student in Janis Frankle’s class at Smithtown Elementary recently had a Genius Hour Week. Students taught their own lessons, created Google slide presentations, docs, and quizzes about subjects they were passionate about. Genius Hour is 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. Genius Hour is a time given during the school day to allow students to follow their passions and learn about topics that interest them.
