RAISING RIGOR

Topic: Curriculum and Instruction
Instructor: Jodi Slonaker
Method: Online (OWRK)
Sponsor: Teach n' Kids Learn, Inc.
Center Offered: OLPD

Course Description:

We know about the three Rs of reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic but now we have a fourth R:  rigor.  

 We hear this buzzword everywhere in education but what does it really mean for teachers and their students?  Not only do we have trouble identifying what this word actually means but educators also have trouble knowing how to put rigor into the classroom without overwhelming their students.  

 In this course, you will review what the word “rigor” really means and how it looks in the classroom. You will learn how to plan lessons with deeper levels of rigor and will reflect on how to stretch student’s thinking and metacognitive processes through questioning and by designing high cognitive engagement activities.  

 Participants will examine issues to increase active student engagement in learning, enhance motivation and learn how to provide scaffolded support so that all students can engage in deeper levels of cognition.  Participants will also learn how to provide feedback and formative assessment that really help learners self-reflect and grow in their understanding of content curriculum.
