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).

Imagination and Rigor

"I believe that everyone has imagination.  What is sometimes not paid attention to is the rigor needed to fuel the imaginative energy."  Anna Deavere Smith (actor and playwright)

This quote is so applicable to any discussion of rigor.  It's not just making it harder, but it does include challenging students to get out of their comfort zone.
