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).

Meeting the Common Core State Standards

This was a tweet a couple of weeks ago related to the Common Core State Standards:

Challenge for my fellow #ascd12 attendees: Tell every vendor it's students, not products or curriculum, that meet Common Core standards.@eduleadership
I worked for three publishing companies for a total of ten years.  The most important lesson I learned?  That it's never the materials; it's what a teacher does with those materials.  Do the right materials help?  Yes, but the materials don't help students grow--YOU DO!!
