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 and the Common Core: Just the Beginning

Does the Common Core handle all your challenges with rigor?  Check out my newest article, Rigor and the Common Core State Standards: Just the Beginning to see.  Here's an excerpt:

The foundation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is a focus on rigor. Developed in the midst of perceptions about lowered expectations for our students, the Standards provided a well defined set of expectations for each grade level in the areas of English/Language Arts, Literacy and Math.  The standards set rigorous benchmarks, but the impact on student learning will depend on the implementation of the standards.
