In the education world, “rigor” is one of the most misunderstood terms resulting in frustration, misaligned intentions and missed opportunities for the design of rich student learning experiences. Rigor is not about hard problems or hard work, but it’s about designing student experiences at the appropriate level of complexity and stretching students through productive struggles within a learning environment that supports the intended learning outcome. In this webinar, Linda Dove, Director of Learning Experiences at MeTEOR Education, will help participants walk away with a clear and concrete understanding of RIGOR and a strategy to determine alignment of complexity to the student task resulting in High-Impact Learning Experiences within High-Impact Learning Environments. This webinar is appropriate for all K-12 administrators and educators.
