Independent Inquiry: Fashion Design

This was one of the first independent inquiry successes. With minimal guidance, no assistance, materials from school, and time at home, a student created this little model outfit!

I especially like how there are slight changes from the paper to fabric versions! Many teachers are rethinking homework; many teachers are experimenting with ‘genius hour’. I’m trying to combine the two ideas, blurring the boundaries between learning at school and learning at home and harnessing the students’ interests to construct their own learning.
