So excited to be kicking off Genius Time at Central this week. We are new to this and, like many of the genius persuasion, a bit discombobulated. We will start meeting with students who have indicated interest to kick off our pilot group this week. Students will pitch ideas to the group "shark tank" style and teams will begin to form next week. The teacher guides will "draft" the group they will work with this session and then draft their own guide next session. We believe every child should have to opportunity to pursue their interests, work with a team or individually to accomplish great things, and be mentored by teachers who care about them and share their interests. Every child.
Monday - Check in with Genius Guides to plan the week and touch base.
Tuesday - Work time.
Thursday - Work time.
Friday - Meet with Genius Guides. Reflect on your learning.
Other Times - See your Genius Guide if you need a pass to work during Skills, lunch, or before or after school.
