While I was not actively participating in the chat, it definitely caught my attention. So I started thinking about my preferred order I would place these Five R's:Q5: Please put these in your preferred order. Rigor, Relevance, Relationships, Results and Reflection. #21stedchat— David Prindle (@dprindle) October 5, 2015
2. RelevanceA5 Inspiration results from connection. Connections result from building relationships. Teacher, Coach, Administrator, Students, etc #EdBeat— Craig Smith (@CSmithGoBlue) June 4, 2015
We have to make sure everything we teach has a purpose to the lives' of our students.
Probably the most highly-debated term in education vernacular, we struggle defining "rigor". I like two synonyms: precision and tenacity (although tenacity may be a little intense).
While the primary focus is not the results, we need to continuously assess progress towards common goals.
We need to continually reflect, including and especially students.
Thank you for viewing,
