August 2014 NTI: Grades 9-12 ELA Turnkey Kit - Session 1

Participants at July 2011 NTI

Session 1: Setting the Stage: What Is Rigor? 

105 Minutes

Participants will consider the notion of rigor and examine how the NY ELA Curriculum modules provide a foundation that supports a rigorous environment in the classroom by reading and analyzing an article, a section of the NY 9-12 ELA curriculum, and a video of instruction.  In so doing, participants will develop a common definition of rigor and connect instructor input and planning to the development of a rigorous classroom environment.
