Via Sharrock
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

I was always amazed how focused students were when they worked aesthetically. There was a fusion of quiet and noise that made its own sounds, a buzzing and helping one another.

this is on point. in today's generation school has become a chore, not because it is boring or uninteresting (and it is) but because that is how we were raised to think. school is supposed to "suck" and we are supposed to hate it with a fiery passion. but if we could integrate the [arts kids love about school into the subjects we don't  believe that kids could learn to be excited about Knowledge and the expanse if possibility it holds.

Good start. Also relevance to the student.

Leslie Minton's curator insight, January 24, 2014 7:52 AM

Rigor across curriculum content, not just a particular subject matter is essential to effective teaching and learning. It is knowing what rigor is in order to determine if it exists.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, January 24, 2014 8:59 PM

This iactually the second article of a series . This is a  word used frequently, but it's definition varies.  I  think rigor need to also differentiate , say, reading levels so each learner is challenged from the level they are currently at. Rigor does not mean, "one size fits all!"
