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).

New Podcast on Rigor

Recently, I recorded a podcast for Eduleadership. It's about 20 minutes, and is appropriate for teachers and leaders.  As noted on the blog, I discuss:

  • The most common misconceptions about rigor, and the top mistakes schools make when trying to increase rigor
  • Why rigor is for everyone, not just honor students
  • What’s new—and what’s not—in the Common Core State Standards when it comes to rigor
  • How teachers can help students with special needs do truly rigorous work
  • How school leaders can promote a culture of rigor in their schools
