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).

Visual Thesaurus

Another of my favorite resources is the Visual Thesaurus.  It's an excellent tool for students to see how words are related in a "living visual" format.  Words can't fully describe it (so take advantage of the limited free searches), but you are able to see how synonyms related, then by clicking those, you see other related words.  A great tool for any content area!
