Program Summary

Increasing Rigor Strategies (Grades K-4)

For Educators of Students At or Above Grade Level 

As we continue to embark on distance learning or hybrid or face to face, we want to continue to advance students’ thinking at a higher level.  Rigor is a balance of conceptual, procedural and application knowledge.  How can we structure our math curriculum to balance all three?  We will look at some facilitative strategies for building rigor and how to promote higher order thinking skills.  A few topics that will be covered during our time together will be; standard investigation, rich tasks, open-ended questioning, Bloom’s Taxonomy, facilitating learning through good questioning and providing feedback to support and scaffold student learning.  We will investigate the standards to make sure we are teaching with the depth and rigor required.  All level learners need to continue to show growth, specific strategies will be shared in order to challenge our students who are functioning at or above grade level.  Having a facilitative approach will increase the rigor of any subject.
