JCHS Instructional News
News & Celebrations- James Clemens High School Faculty
Issue #18 / April 7, 2014
This week's Instructional News is dedicated to our upcoming "Pilot Passion Project." If you check out the resources below, you should be able to get better sense of both the Why and How of the day.
Freedom to learn and create as we choose is a blessing we have been given through the shared leadership philosophy at JC, but sometimes that can be a bit overwhelming. Hopefully, that is where I can be of service! If you need a partner for brainstorming, finding collaborators, prepping your "pitch," or anything at all please come by or call.
Have a great week!
Passion Projects / Genius Hour--- What exactly is that?

DRIVE: What Motivates Us
Brainstorming / Inspiration
So, If you're unsure about where to begin...
- differentiation methods for higher level students
- using social media effectively in the classroom
- using blogs (teachers or students)
- making the transition from middle school to high school easier for students
- sharing the great things in our school (PR)
The spreadsheet linked below shows what happened when a high school implemented a Genius Hour in the first semester of this year. I think this one is a MUST SEE! It should help get the creative juices flowing!
