“Passion exists at the intersection of three or more things you’re really curious about” – Steve Kotler.
This would be a great activity for students to discover what they are passionate about. Teachers need to cultivate student’s curiosity and help develop their passions. A great project to assist students to explore their passion is Genius Hour. I did Genius Hour this year with my students, and they loved it. It allowed students to explore subjects/topics of interest and passion (I had one student do a presentation on the Big Bang – it was amazing!). In the future, to augment my Genius Hour project I will use this as an introductory lesson or anticipatory set to incite enthusiasm. Teachers need to help students to become learner-driven by guiding students to discover their passion and purpose in life.
