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).

Engaging Strategies for Research

Missy Miles uses content literacy in her research activities:

"For biographies, my students dress like their person and give a speech about themselves. When we do colonial research, they write a historical fiction picture book to retell the story of the colony they research. We play “Will the Real Christopher Columbus Please Stand Up” and hold an “Ole Winfrey” show for Spanish conquistadors."

Reading, writing, speaking, and listening combine to help students bring research to life. How do you incorporate literacy and technology to bring research to life?
