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).

Giving Me Hope, Part Three

I have a copy of a wonderful book called "Gives Me Hope: The 127 Most Inspiriting Bite-Sized Stories".  It is worth every penny!  This week, I'll be sharing five stories from the book. 

My friend's younger sister was coming home by herself when a guy on the bus began hassling her.  An elderly man on the other side of the bus stood up and demanded that the guy "leave his granddaughter alone!"  The guy stopped, and got off at the next stop.  The elderly man, who was a stranger, gives me hope.
