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).

What's your most positive student experience?

Think of all your days or years of teaching/leading in schools.  What experience stands out as one of the most positive?  Don't forget....you do make a difference. 


  1. One experience that stands out for me is peeling carrots, making hamburgers, and washing dishes with students. Each night a different group of students and a staff member would make and clean up dinner for the other students and staff in our public school. The bonding from working and eating together was a rewarding important foundation for our learning together.

  2. Awesome suggestion...there are so many ways this could be adapted for schools!
