Matt Hawkins#goaltime

#goaltime is a Genius Hour inspired learning unit. Students set their own goals and share the learning process with our school community and beyond. Goals include deep dives into personal interests and projects that aim to help someone or solve a problem. Scaffolding includes guided project brainstorming and proposals with a sharing session at the end that can include showcases or presentations. There are many “right” ways to facilitate #goaltime with the mindset focused on student ownership of their learning.

Carrie BaughcumProject Wonder

Wonder and curiosity are everywhere. Life, learning, and new experiences can create all kinds of questions and wonder for our students. With each moment of unknown and wonder we have two choices: let the moment pass or grab hold of it, embrace it, and use it to guide, teach, and empower our students to be fearless learners. Project Wonder provides the structure, routine, tools, information, and strategies for providing one, a few, or infinite moments of exploration for your students while developing skills that will enable and empower them to be independent, lifelong learners.

Students will use the Texting Story app to create a conversation between the sun and water to demonstrate understanding of the water cycle. Using the app, students will take on the role of the sun and a water droplet, “talking” about how the droplet will travel through the cycle. You could also include a cloud in the conversation!

Lauren HawkinsA "Functional" Transformation

This lesson needed to have a "shake up"! I use to give students the rules for transformations but would be frustrated when they memorized. I developed a Desmos Activity for students to explore the rules themselves by moving sliders to see what happens to graphs when the variables change. They record their thinking on their own Google Slides (by taking screenshots) while they work with a partner on the Desmos Activity. As a closure, students reflect on their learning by posting a video to a topic on Flipgrid. Students can answer each others questions or ask for clarification using Flipgrid.

These activities range from collaborative slides, to “Show me what you know” where they get to create products, video explanations, Quizizz games, and more. Students complete the choice boards in any order, based on their own needs.
