This engaging conversation in two parts with Wiggins makes me think. Is rigour really subjective? Is rigour not dependent on our design but determined by the solution and the student?

Rubrics help us understand the vocabulary and the expectations of both writing and common core standards.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, January 1, 2013 5:14 PM

It is always worth looking at rubrics for other standards, it helps me to reassess what I am asking students to be able to demonstrate.

To be ready for college, workforce training and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and non-print texts in media forms old and new. Source

Click through the Blue headline for the crosswalk.  A pdf version is also linked on the page. 

Deborah Owen's curator insight, January 23, 2013 8:56 AM

Why is digital information fluency important? This page shows you how each step directly addresses Common Core standards! 

Doug Picirillo's curator insight, January 26, 2013 6:36 PM

Information fluency is not about learning to manage information, or even to communicate about information.  It is about about learning to discover and manage meaning and communicate effectively in a world awash in information.
