We did start a Google Doc for this particular topic if you are interested in joining that, please e-mail me at: jdewitt8@gmail.com.

I am intrigued by the Genius Hour concept. I would love to implement it in my classes, however, I'm not really sure how to begin, which direction I should give my students and what parameters should be given so that the time is not wasted. I do have a series of "Student Choice" questions that may be a springboard for a project for them. Does the Genius Hour always result in a final project?

It does usually culminate with something, I am going to have my students present their projects at the end of the year. I am also delving into how to take them a step farther via @angelamaiers Choose2Matter program. Students would find their passions, learn about them in the context of Spanish (language, culture, etc.), and then take their passions and decide how they could change the world with them!

Is the google doc in the folder already, or do we need to request special access?
