WHAT RIGOR LOOKS LIKE IN THE CLASSROOM

What does rigor really looks like in the classroom? As schools are focused more and more on increasing academic rigor, in part because of the emphasis placed on rigor in all of the various state standards, it's a question every teacher is asking. In this video, Robyn Jackson dispels the confusion by presenting the clear and concise definition of academic rigor she's developed over time and working with teachers to show them what rigor looks like in practice.

Visit a variety of different schools to see real teachers who are using Jackson's field-tested methods to successfully boost academic rigor in their classrooms. You'll witness these teachers helping students to construct meaning for themselves; impose structure on information that allows them to think accurately, consider multiple meanings, and engage in disciplined inquiry and thought; integrate their skills into processes; and apply what they've learned in more than one context and to unpredictable situations.

What Rigor Looks like in the Classroom DVD takes the mystery out of rigor and provides practical guidance for implementing rigorous instruction that meets the needs of all students.

EFFECTIVE SUPERVISION: SUPPORTING THE ART AND SCIENCE OF TEACHING

Administrative leaders have performed observations of teaching practice for years, but those observations have often been seen as superficial at best and subjectively biased at worst. And yet, observation, when done well, can play a vital role in increasing teacher effectiveness, and has become an important part of teacher evaluation systems. What can teachers really gain from being observed in the classroom? And what should the observers be looking for?

In Effective Supervision: Supporting the Art and Science of Teaching DVD, researcher and author Robert J. Marzano presents a framework for observing classroom instruction based on the questions and frameworks he first laid out in the best-selling book The Art and Science of Teaching (see inside). Marzano presents a detailed observation protocol and demonstrates how to use it¡Xnot only as a tool for analyzing classroom instruction, but also as a starting point to encourage professional dialogue among teachers. As you observe teachers in a variety of classrooms, Marzano and a panel of teachers identify critical aspects of instruction that can help all teachers move their practice from good to great. The interplay between the lessons and the discussions will yield "aha" moments for teachers of all ages and subject areas. This is an essential tool for supervisors, administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders, and can also assist professional learning communities in their ongoing work.
