VIGOR IS BIGGER THAN RIGOR
National Educator Program (NEP)
Presentation Category:Curriculum Integration
A recent fixation on academic rigor in current years has contributed to a standards-based, high-stakes environment where teachers are judged by test scores and evaluation checklists. Academic vigor engages so they want to do the work and do it at a higher level. Participants will explore the components of academic vigor, examples of vigorous instruction, and how to use career academies as a natural vehicle to cultivate vigor in their schools.
