ACADEMIC RIGOR AND THE ROAD TO "EXEMPLARY"

Description: The NAESP Rigor seminar was developed with an eye toward providing information about rigor in the classroom, especially in light of the Common Core. We’ll discuss four aspects of rigor: 1) metacognition; 2) higher level thinking; 3) deep understanding; 4) solving problems then address specific teacher behaviors and student responses in order to help principals and teachers engage in discussions about integrating greater rigor into instruction. Academic rigor is more than a set of activities; it is focused on the belief that the primary role of schooling is to develop self-directed individuals who are self-reflective, self-modifying and self-managing. It entails teaching beyond knowledge and skills to a deeper understanding of concepts, generalizations and principles that sit at the heart of disciplines and are transferable within and across subjects. Participants will consider what changes can be instituted for students to achieve more in the classroom.
