This workshop begins with a discussion of what rigor is and is not. Next, the three areas that Barbara Blackburn identifies with rigor (environment, instruction, and demonstrated learning) will be addressed. Specifically, we will take a deep dive into these areas through the lens of the Danielson (Domains 2 and 3) and Marzano (Domain 1) frameworks. Tools such as Bloom's Taxonomy and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge will be explored through hands-on activities. Participants will then use “Look Fors'' to identify these best practices in video clips of real classrooms. Finally, participants will engage in discussion about how administrators can set expectations and support rigor in the classroom.
