The 6 Ps of Genius Hour Online Course is a course for educators that are wanting to make Genius Hour a reality in their own classrooms. Throughout the course, you will be introduced to the 6 Ps, as well as receive practical advice for creating a system that results in Genius Hour running itself. Learn how to weave the standards into passion-based learning, connect with outside experts, and address important skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity, and reflection throughout the process. Almost everything that is shared in this course is a direct result of how I implemented Genius Hour in my own classroom. Learn what worked, what didn't work, and what you can do to use Genius Hour to give students opportunities to apply their learning and make connections. If you are wanting to dive into Genius Hour and give your students an opportunity to experience meaningful learning, this is the course for you!
