Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels,
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels,
and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

An Inspiring Video

One of the features my publisher, Eye on Education produces is a set of inspirational stories and videos.  I think all the Tales from a Teacher's Heart videos are awesome.  Here's one based on my experience teaching. 
Season 2, Episode 1
Having A Vision
Told by Barbara R. Blackburn
When the state mandates that her students must pass an achievement test to be promoted to high school, Barbara Blackburn responds to the challenge. She creates a vision of a successful school year, and she makes that vision a reality with rigorous instruction, support, and motivation for each of her students.
