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).

Importance of Persistence

I just read a blog about a new book coming out.  The material about the importance of persistence ties to Marzano's work about reinforcing effort.  I pre-ordered my copy, here's an excerpt of the blog entry:

In his new book How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, author Paul Tough makes the case that persistence and grit are the biggest indicators of student success. Being resilient against failure, he says, is the fundamental quality we should be teaching kids, and he gives examples of where that’s being done.
