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).

How Parents Can Help their Children Succeed

I recently ran across a report, Doing What Matters Most:  How Parents Can Help Their Children Succeed in School.  IN reviewing 30 years of research, they found four key things parents can do:

1.  Have high expectations,
2.  Talk about school at home,
3.  Help students develop positive attitudes about learning and a good work ethic, and
4.  Read with their sons and daughters.

Here's a tip sheet, designed for principals, with concrete suggestions for each of these four areas.
