Genius hour on Twitter

Caught up on my Twitter account tonight... Mrs. Denise Krebbs (in Iowa) set up a discussion on the Genius Hour. Sounds a lot like our independent reading project! See her blog at: http://mrsdkrebs.edublogs.org/2011/12/02/geniushour-blog-post-index/ I have to remember to look at it all this summer, for sure!
Found another blog... http://messyprofessional.wordpress.com/2012/01/19/genius-hour/
See the article on it here:
