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).

Summer is Almost Here!!

It's that time of the year again.  The year is winding down, and students will soon be gone unless you teach in a year-round school.  For me, it's my busy season.  I'll be traveling the whole summer, working with schools and districts on their professional development.  I'll post periodically, but not regularly until the year starts back.  Have a restful and reflective summer. Please remember to check in on my new radio show, WRGR:  Rigor Made Easy throughout the summer.  It will include topics such as:

Rigor for Students with Special Needs
Rigor in the Kindergarten Classroom
A Superintendent's Perspective of Rigor
Rigor in the Spanish and ELL Classroom
Facilitating Rigor in the Classroom
Rigor in the Science and Math Classroom
Rigor from a School Counselor's Perspective
....and more!!!!

 You can listen online or subscribe through ITunes.  Enjoy! Barbara
