  • Involve a critical mass of teachers nationwide from the first day the project moves into schools.
  • Focus on results rather than means
  • Standards have a stronger integrated literacy structure than most state standards
  • Stringent readability ranges for each grade level
  • Balance of literature and informational texts
  • Text Complexity

defining rigor and what it looks like
Defining Rigor and What it Looks Like
  • Academic rigor can be defined as the set of standards we set for our students and the expectations we have for our students and ourselves.
  • Rigor is much more than assuring that the course content is of sufficient difficulty to differentiate it from K-12 level work.
  • Rigor includes our basic philosophy of learning – we expect our students to demonstrate not only content mastery, but applied skills and critical thinking about the disciplines being taught.
  • Rigor also means that we expect much from ourselves, our colleagues, and our institutions of learning.
components of rigor
Components of Rigor
  • Assists students in fulfilling predetermined outcomes and
  • competencies by challenging them with high expectations.
  • Essential components of rigor in the classroom:
  • Content acquisition
  • Critical thinking
  • Relevance
  • Integration
  • Application of concepts
  • Long term retention
  • Responsibility
