Rigor: Define & Embrace!

Dr.Blackburn defines "rigor" as: "Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, and each is supported so he or she can learn at high level, and each student demonstrates learning at high level."...

It is easy to expect students to learn at high levels, it is quite another thing to provide the support students need.

I.N.K.: The Joy of Exploring Book Structure with the Common Core

I.N.K.: The Joy of Exploring Book Structure with the Common Core | Continuing Professional Development - CCMS | Scoop.it

"Structure is a the-world-is-your-oyster kind of thing.  The options for structuring a piece of writing to inspire, entertain, and inform are endless. I can be creative, literary, artistic, poetic, humorous, vivid, and suspenseful. I can use metaphor, imagery, narrative arc, voice, or any other tool I’d like. When I write, I’m like a curator at a museum. I get to decide what to focus on and how to present it. So half the fun is figuring out: What is the best way to tell this story? What interesting or clever structure will make this amazing material come to life for readers?"

I love the insights that Elizabeth shares here.  I haven't seen any Common Core-related articles dealing with structure, so this article will be very useful.

Growth Mindset and the Common Core Math Standards

Growth Mindset and the Common Core Math Standards | Continuing Professional Development - CCMS | Scoop.it

"For many years, intelligence was thought to be static (fixed) and could not be altered. Informal research has shown this to be particularly true when it comes to students thinking about their mathematics intelligence."

Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset

Brain scientists define learning as a process that will modify a subsequent behavior, and memory as the record left by a learning process. However, learning and memory are dependent on each other, as illustrated below.
