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).

Creating #Rigor Through Facebook

One of the activities I recommend in my books is to have students create fake Facebook walls instead of writing a simple summary about a person or character.  It pushed students to higher levels to create status updates, choose friends and interests, and decide on page likes.  Look at this sample from @realmraugustus on Twitter and see how you can use this in your classroom!
