    Process
    Working by yourself or in a group (of no more than 4)...
    1.  Begin by brainstorming a list of things you are passionate about and/or topics you are interested in knowing more about on paper.  
     
    2.  Once you narrow it down to one topic, fill out the Genius Hour Project Proposal in Notability.  One form must be completed per
    project.  Turn in your form to Ms. Meaux through Edmodo.
     
    3.  Create a project based on what you've researched.  This can be a presentation, movie, skit, commercial, letter, blog, website...this is open to your creativity.  If you are unsure of your project choice, ask Ms. Meaux for approval.  
     
    4.  Begin your research using your ipad or class computers.
     
    5.  You will have 4 Friday Genius hours to complete your project before you present to the class.
