In this practical new book, authors Denise Krebs and Gallit Zvi show you how to implement Genius Hour, a time when students can develop their own inquiry-based projects around their passions and take ownership of their work. Brought to you by MiddleWeb and Routledge Eye On Education, the book takes you step-by-step through planning and teaching Genius Hour. You’ll learn how to guide your students as they:

  • Develop inquiry questions based on their interests;
  • Conduct research to learn more about their topic of choice;
  • Create presentations to teach their fellow students in creative ways; and
  • Present their finished product for a final assessment.
