The students were given one period each week for 5 weeks to explore their interests and plan, implement and produce a Genius Hour Presentation in a format of their choosing. They began with a few worksheets to identify their interest areas and various ideas in which they may present their information and also various formats both electronically and paper-based which they could use to showcase their learning. The students used books, ipads and computers to access information. Various showcases included working replicas of battery-operated cars and helicopters, working volcanoes, a hockey rink, baking, painting and posters. Students were so engaged that most students completed the majority of their projects outside of school on their own time.

Algebra Team: Teacher Collaboration
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Algebra teachers, Juliana Jones and Marlo Warburton, have common philosophies and expectations in their algebra classrooms but use their own unique teaching styles and structures to create consistent experiences for students. Collaboration is an important part of that process and allows teachers to provide common learning experiences in their classrooms despite different teaching styles and structures. This video takes a look at the warm-up, lesson, strategies for group work, classroom expectations and routines to discuss commonalities but also identify ways in which each teacher personalizes their classrooms based on their own teaching style and personality.

Animals in Winter Project
Conditions of Use:

We started this project by reading the story “Over & Under the Snow” By Kate
Messner. While reading the story, we talked about the different animals that we
saw and what they did in the pictures. After reading the book we, we made a
chart of animals that lived over the snow and animals that lived under the snow
(both from the story and our prior knowledge. We then decided to make a large
mural of what animals do over and under the snow with the list that we had
made. Students were split into different groups that were in charge of various
animals (ex. animals under the snow, animals over the snow, animals in the sky
and nature). Using their creativity, they were to create pictures of animals in their
certain category through collaboration with one another.

Students working collaboratively on a mini-archaeology dig to locate and identify artifacts, create hypotheses about the objects and what information they tell us about a society, and research past artifacts to determine if their hypotheses were correct. Students had to use collaboration when working on the dig, when creating their hypotheses, when measuring the artifacts, and when forming conclusions. Additionally, students had to use critical thinking when formulating theories, researching and reviewing data online, assessing their ideas, analyzing and comparing their hypotheses with archaeology studies online, and when justifying their hypotheses (and proving them) with the artifact data they discovered online, and forming conclusions.

Bullying and the Brain Case Study
Rating

In this case study, students will learn how to interpret MRI brain scans and to identify the functional regions (i.e., lobes) of the brain most likely impacted by bullying behaviour.

Context
Every day, teens struggle with bullying – at home, school and online. The social and biological impact of bullying behaviour will be explored through the interactive activities included in this case study. Students will learn how individuals that bully are often surrounded by negative pressures, and how being bullied may lead to mental illness later in life.

During the pre-lab, students are asked to read a brief article about photosynthesis and complete a KWL chart to identify their own knowledge and understanding coming into the experiment. Based on what they wish to learn, they create a problem statement that will become the basis for their experiments design.In collaborative groups, students write procedures, conduct their experiment, collect and record data and prepare for the final, reflective portion of the experience. During this phase, students determine the validity of their evidence and determine whether or not it supports their hypothesis. To improve future experiences, they also reflect upon how to make their data better and how to improve their use of the scientific process.
