The dominant contemporary notion of academic rigor is the latter—it rests on the premise that difficulty is defined by a student’s workload rather than the depth and richness and intensity of the intellectual journey. From the Latin, rigor means stiffness, rigidity, cold, harshness.
Education doesn’t have to simply be about memorization, grammar or writing conventions! I use education to empower and evolve the consciousness of my students!
My joy comes from creating lessons that are inclusive and present opportunities for students to understand their own identity, empathize with the identity/experience of others, think about and challenge inequities, and work together to find ways to approach and change those inequities.
