WE Talks & Genius Hour

WE Talks & Genius Hour

The WE Talk/Genius Hour project is a 7th and 8th grade unit that allows students to explore their passions, build on curiosity, develop critical thinking and research skills and share a message/knowledge with an audience.  This project is personalized, fosters student driven learning and demonstrates the 21st Century Skills of creativity, collaboration, and communication.  Each 7th grader creates a Genius Hour informational display table, and 8th graders write and perform a "TED Talk"/WE Talk speech.   Each student participated in a structured research process, met with an assigned mentor, conferenced with teachers and peers and is ready to share with an audience.  

Join us on April 10th  for WE Talk/Genius Hour live!
