Throwback Tuesday- The beginnings of "Innovation Hour," my take on 20 Time


This and future blog posts are meant to document my journey with the concept of 20 Time in the classroom. I started this project at the beginning of last school year and wrote about successes and failures along the way. This is post one, last August, as I planned the implementation of what became so much more than I thought it would!

From August 15, 2014:

I am not officially back to school yet, but I have been lurking around the halls and in my room over the past few days to get a feel for how I want to set it up this year. I wish we had smaller, more modular tables so that I could set up a square of tables for discussion plus some work stations, but I will work with what I have.

On the curriculum front, I plan to try out #20 time with my students. I have read a great deal about the concept of giving students 20 minutes of unfettered time to pursue something they are passionate about throughout the year. I love this idea. I saw a link to this video on Youtube that showcases a number of ways students used their #20 time at York school. If my students can do 1/10th of what those students did, I will be excited!
