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.
The teacher provides a set amount of time for the students to work on their passion projects. Students are then challenged to do a project that they want to learn about. Throughout the process the teacher facilitates the student projects to ensure that they are on task.
Pupils picked a wide range of topics for their projects from sport, famous people, Bit coin, dancing, GAA clubs, ocean life & many more. Work was completed over four weeks and finished with our wonderful presentation afternoon when each child introduced their chosen topic to the class along with resources needed. It was a fantastic opportunity to practice public speaking and see the children so confident! Well done everyone 👏🏼
