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 Two
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 and I won toys at a fair and gave one to a mentally disabled boy. He said, "Thank you." His father cried. The boy hadn't spoken in months. Children like him give me hope.
