10. Implementing 20% Time/Genius Hour into Your Classroom

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 7/9/2019 to 7/11/2019

20% Time is a simple concept that every teacher can execute successfully. The concept was taken from Google’s 20% Time model and applied within a K-12 educational setting. Students are given 20% of their time to work on student-designed projects, which align the curriculum with their passions to help to identify their career path. Under the guidance of their teacher, students create their own goals and assessments, which truly makes for a purposeful and collaborative classroom environment— a piece of the pie that made Google enterprises so successful!

20% Time provides students with more freedom over their learning, hence sparking curiosity and increasing innovation and intrinsic motivation. We will also discuss Genius Hour (for those that may not be ready to commit to 20% Time), where students explore new topics each week with several informal presentations at the end of the hour.

You will have the opportunity to learn from guest facilitators (invited by the LHRIC to share their innovative work), who have successfully implemented these concepts in their own classrooms.

A challenge faced by educators when teaching English Language Learners is knowing whether a student's academic struggle is due to the typical process of acquiring a new language or to something more intrinsic, such as a disability. When learning a new language, individuals might display certain behaviors that can be mistaken for a disability because of their similar characteristics and educators must exercise caution when making decisions about referrals for special education. This workshop will invite participants to examine the behaviors associated with new language acquisition as well as clinical markers of a disability. We will identify factors that must be considered prior to referring an ELL student for an evaluation. Educators will engage in case study discussions to consider how languages, culture, social-emotional dynamics and academics interact and impact student achievement.
