If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know the spring semester around here means 20Time, a passion project where students spend 20% of class time for 12 weeks working on an individual plan approved by their peers. (A whole bunch of free materials, including handouts, to explain the project can be found here.)
One of the cornerstones of the program is that the teacher also completes a 20Time project, serving as the ultimate model for our students. It’s my fourth year using the project and this time around I made a video to announce the plan:
Yes, it’s a beast.
Yes, I’m excited to finally slay it.
And, yes, I WILL hit that April 6 deadline. No. Matter. What.

How about you? Have you brought 20Time to your classroom yet? If no, what’s holding you back? If yes, what’s your spring project? Let me know in the “Leave a Reply” box below. Teach on, everyone!
