Understanding Rigor in the Classroom
Robert J Marzano has spent over 50 years revolutionizing education research and observation. Now in Understanding Rigor in the Classroom, Marzano brings that experience and expertise to one of the most complicated questions in education: what is rigor, and how can I use it to improve my student s learning?
Marzano cuts through the noise to define rigor upfront on page one, breaking the concept down to its most essential components for each key situation of student learning:
Understanding Rigor with Declarative Knowledge
Enhancing Rigor when students are first introduced to Declarative Knowledge
Understanding Rigor with Procedural Knowledge
Enhancing Rigor when students are first introduced to a Procedural Knowledge
Marzano goes in-depth in analyzing each learning situation, exploring specific activities, tasks, and strategies that utilize cognitive analysis processes, habits of mind, and project-based learning to increase rigor. With Understanding Rigor in the Classroom, it s possible for every classroom to incorporate rigorous instruction into every lesson.
