Overview

Do the following student complaints sound familiar? "Why are we doing this?" "This is so boring!" "I'll just copy the answers." Teaching adolescents can be a challenge because they are often struggling with issues related to apathy, self-esteem, and rebellion. However, by using highly relevant and rigorous material, teachers can chip away at those challenges and further build skills needed for college and careers. Join Shervette Miller-Payton as she introduces the Rigor and Relevance Framework and how it can be used when developing real-world projects, quick assignments, and authentic assessments for teens. She'll also discuss how to avoid pitfalls of rigor and interdisciplinary work, and how the framework can help decrease cheating plagiarism.
