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).

Rigor through Riddles

You've seen me write about this before, but one of the best ways to ratchet up your rigor with vocabulary review is through riddles.  On this site, there's an adaptation of that with math riddles.  The teacher did a "Be a Math Detective" wall.  Students wrote the riddles on layered levels.  Other students could lift the flap once for a clue and twice for the solution.  A nice visual way to create riddles (but remember, you'd want to up the number of clues, going from most difficult to least difficult to add rigor).
