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).

Five Keys to Teaching

Five things I've learned about teaching:

1.  Students don't care about learning unless you care about them.
2.  What you teach is important; how you teach it is more so.
3.  Students are motivated, just not necessarily about what you want them to be motivated about.
4.  It is possible to help students build intrinsic motivation, including effort.
5.  You make a difference; whether it's positive or negative is up to you.
