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).

For Principals: Free Webinar on Rigor and the CCSS

Click here to register for my webinar with the National Association of Secondary School Principals!

Join noted author and speaker Barbara Blackburn for a special webinar examining instructional rigor and the upcoming Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

The CCSS will require an increased focus on rigor in the classroom, but at the same time, if everyday instruction is not rigorous, the standards cannot be fully implemented. In this webinar, Barbara will discuss the meaning of instructional rigor, elements of a rigorous classroom, and examples of strategies for all subject areas.

Drawing on her experience as a teacher, professor, and consultant, Barbara works to raise the level of rigor and motivation for professional educators and students alike. She will be a featured speaker at the Ignite 2013 conference, February 28-March 2 in National Harbor, MD, leading a student-focused session titled "Motivation + Engagement + Higher Expectation = Student Success."
