4 Myths About Rigor in the Classroom
What is Rigor?
Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels, and each student demonstrates learning at high levels. (Blackburn, 2008)
Myth #1
Lots of homework is a sign of rigor
Rigor is more than just content and cannot be measured by the amount of things students must do.
True rigor is expecting every student to learn and perform at high levels.
Myth #3
Rigor is Not for Everyone
Myth #4
Providing Support Means Lessening Rigor
Supporting students so they can learn at high levels is
CENTRAL to the definition of rigor.
In classrooms where all students learn, teachers and leaders care deeply about their students.
Myth #2
Rigor Means Doing More
ALL students must be provided an opportunity for a rigorous educational experience.
Rigor is anchored in the belief that EVERY student can be successful given adequate time and sufficient support.
As you design lessons to move students toward more challenging work, you must also provide
them with scaffolding to support them as they learn.
Students are motivated to do well when they value what they are doing AND when they believe they have a chance of success
many times, homework is busy work
all homework is not equally useful
Rigor is about expectations, instructional effectiveness, and assessment practices.
Do not throw away everything
you are doing...merely adjust what you do to increase your expectations and the learning of your students.
