5 Questions To Evaluate Curriculum For Rigor

5 Questions To Evaluate Curriculum For Rigor | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter
Nancy Jones's insight:

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!"

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, January 24, 4:36 AM

Good start. Also relevance to the student.

Leslie Minton's curator insight, January 24, 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.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 25, 3:03 AM

A text does not the curriculum make. The curriculum is what the children learn and mesh with their lived history. The ultimate test is Life and all its manifestions according to Alfred North Whitehead.
