A Few Questions
Bad Idea Factories
“Children do not need to be made to learn about the world, or shown how. They want to, and they know how.” ~ John Holt
• How did you come up with the idea for your project?
• What were the successes of your project?
• Were there any problems you had to overcome?
• Was there a point where you had to stop and readjust the project a lot?
• What were the weaknesses of your project?
• What was the most important thing you learned throughout your project?
• If you were assigned this project again, what topic/goal would you choose?
Tell the story of your project
Creativity/Innovation Takes Time
THE BIG QUESTION
• The Proposal (Is the proposal on-time, and does it address the required questions appropriately?)
• The Blog (Does the post meet the required length, address the required topic, and submitted to the form on-time? Do you post regularly?)
• The Product (Did you successfully move from idea phase to production phase, and do you have something to show at the end of the term?)
• Productivity (Are you spending your Genius Hour time by actively and passionately working on your project? If not, we need to quickly adjust the project so you are working on something that is intrinsically motivating. This is less objective, but if I see students not being productive, I will intervene.)
• Final Presentation (Does your presentation meet all of the required elements?)
What does it look like?
“Each time one prematurely teaches a child something he could have discovered himself,
that child is kept from inventing it and consequently from understanding it completely.”
― Jean Piaget
