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).

#Rigor Through Discovering Errors

Another easy way to increase rigor when beginning a lesson, ask students to discover errors.  For the topic you will be teaching today, create a webpage or blog entry that mimics an online encyclopedia entry.  Include at least four content errors.  Ask students to compare the webpage to a credible site, such as the National Geographic Channel.  Their task is to correct the mistakes.  This is a great way to build some prior knowledge and hone students’ analysis skills.
