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).

Sneak Peek of New Book!!

 Today, I found out my newest book is off the press and on the way for shipping!  It will also definitely be available at NASSP in Tampa (and so will I). Want to get a preview of some of the activities/key points? Check out the downloadable templates and the free study guides for teachers and leaders.

It's an introduction to the concept of rigor, with a focus on what rigor looks like in the classroom.  It also includes information about the Common Core State Standards, student motivation, strategic and nonstrategic learners, and how to put high expectations into action.  Please don't hesitate to send me feedback/comment about the material.  You can also view some preview pages and find ordering information here.
