What would you do with an extra hour a day?

Before we go to bed tonight we move our clocks back an hour, and almost magically gain time.  Wouldn't it be amazing if we had the power to add an hour whenever we wanted to during the school day?  If you asked students what they would do with an extra hour I'm willing to bet that the vast majority would want more recess or lunch, but what would you do more of with an extra hour?  Here’s my list.

  • Service Learning Projects
  • Healthy Debates
  • Read Aloud
  • Logic and Critical Thinking Puzzles
  • Passion Based Learning
  • Technology Exploration
  • Current Events
  • Guest Speakers
  • Team Building
  • Study World Cultures

If I had one more hour, I'd like to collaborate and plan more with my colleagues, differentiate more, and have more of a focus on student work.
