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).

Reflecting on the Year: Four Questions

As the school year is winding down, take some time to reflect.  It's easy to forget this, because there are so many tasks to do now, but I found this was important.  We need to ask ourselves four questions:
1.  What worked?
2.  What do I want to change next year?
3.  What were my successes with students (nothing is too small)?
4.  What do I want to do to prepare for next year? 

If you take the time to answer these questions now, it will prepare you for next year.  In August, pull them back out and use them to start your year!
