Genius Hour Links & Timeline
During the chat many resources where shared that I was able to gather from experts in the genius hour world. I have included a few for you to browse this week as we use this next week to get our first groups and projects off the ground and running!
My goal is to have our Success Groups and Genius Hour Projects up and running by Monday September 14th. This will take a little classroom/homeroom support from teachers. I plan on talking to grade level teams next week. If you are needing me for anything else or just to think out loud please let me know and I will squeeze in time this next week!

If it doesn't work for you to squeeze that in, that is okay too. I wanted to provide the link and "flip PD" for those of you that like to process and think deeper prior to Wednesday PD session. Just like "flipping" classroom instruction like some of you indicated was something you want to try as something new this year, here is a great way to do that with video.
