Grade 7: Jewnius Hour Project (Due: Monday 6/3)
This week students started working on their Jewnius Hour Project! The concept revolves around the fantastic idea of Genius Hour.
What is Jewnius Hour?
Jewnius Hour is an opportunity for students to explore their own passions and share their learning with the class. This project should involve research, creativity, and passion. The topic selection is completely up to you! The goal of this assignment is for you to choose an area of interest (that connects in some way to Judaism, Israel, Jewish values, etc.) and explore that topic. You will then create a presentation and an activity to share your findings with your peers. Please do not choose a subject that you are already an expert in! This project is designed to foster and support your own learning and growth regarding a topic of interest.
Due to the creative nature of this project, there are very few requirements that are set in stone.
- You must create a presentation (of some sort) and an interactive activity for your peers. The presentation should demonstrate what you learned throughout this process. Your peers should also leave your presentation learning something new!
- Time- Your presentation and activity (together) should last a minimum of 15 minutes. (The maximum time frame for one presentation/activity should be 45 minutes. Please see me if you are going to use an entire period)
- Review the rubric!
