Rigor and Relevance Framework

DESCRIPTION:

This session focuses on using rigor and relevance to keep students engaged. By consistently challenging students with well-­‐planned rigorous and relevant learning activities, teachers can create a learning environment which is productive and produces high achievement levels.


Session A – Learn and apply the rigor and relevance framework. Review lessons and assessments to determine where they fall on the framework.
