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).

Supporting Learners

Do you have students who need extra support from you?  I did when I was a teacher.  It seemed that certain students just always needed that extra step.  It's important to recognize that we do need to support learners with strategies such as modeling, but we also need to teach students to learn to do it themselves.  Think of it like a bike:  training wheels, then hand on the back of the seat, then by themselves!
