Wonderful article that points out some of the challenges of Standards Based Learning as well as ways that instructors can maintain their own unique teaching styles and interests.  Great article for discussion in PD meetings, online learning, and teacher prep courses!

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!"

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.
