• THINK of a number from 1 to 10. • MULTIPLY that number by 9. • If the number is a 2-‐digit number, ADD the digits together. • Now SUBTRACT 5.
• DETERMINE which le?er in the alphabet corresponds to the number you ended up with (example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c, etc.) • THINK of a country that starts with that le?er. • REMEMBER the last le?er of the name of that country.
• THINK of the name of an animal that starts with that le?er. • REMEMBER the last le?er in the name of that animal. • THINK of the name of a fruit that starts with that le?er.
Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eaKng an Orange?
Using the Rigor/Relevance Framework for Planning and InstrucKon
Think*Pair*Share • What is Rigor? • What is Relevance? • Can you make instrucKon relevant to students without sacriﬁcing the content?
Blooms Taxonomy of Thinking • CreaJng-‐ generaKng new ideas • EvaluaJng-‐ jusKfying a decision or choice • Analyzing-‐ breaking into component parts • Applying-‐ using informaKon in a new seXng • Understanding-‐ explaining idea or concept • Remembering-‐ recalling informaKon
Learning is relevant when the student: • Understands how this informaKon or skill has some applicaJon in their life. • Has an opportunity to follow their own process rather than just learn “the facts”. • Is not just learning content and skills, but is learning how they learn.
How to move students toward greater relevance: • Using skills and knowledge in rouKne school seXng. Work as directed by the teacher. • Using skills and knowledge for myself in the real world. Figuring out my own approaches.
How to move students toward greater rigor: • Using skills and knowledge in rouKne school seXng. Work as directed by the teacher. • Using knowledge to analyze and solve school based problems and create soluKons.
A C B High Rigor Low Rigor Low Relevance High Relevance
Quadrant A Gather and store bits of knowledge and informaKon. Remember or understand informaKon. (Example: Pick the right deﬁniKon) Quadrant C Use knowledge to analyze & solve school-‐based problems and create soluKons. Work under the speciﬁc direcKons of the teacher. (Example: Develop categories for types of plants.) Quadrant D Apply knowledge and skills in complex ways to analyze and solve real problems & create soluKons. Confront real-‐world unknowns. (Example: Take part in a science fair & respond to quesKons.) Quadrant B Apply knowledge in real-‐life situaKons. (Example: Develop a household budget.)

Strengthening Your Quads • This acKvity will allow you to apply what you have learned about Rigor and Relevance. • This is a group acKvity in which you can rely on one another and reinforce the learning among all members.
Materials • Rigor/Relevance Framework (Post Its labeled A, B, C, D) • Sample Middle Level Student Performances (inside envelope)
Procedure • Work in groups of 4-‐5. • As a group, place each of the student performances in the proper quadrant using the worksheet. (small group) • Check your work (whole group) • Discuss any diﬀerences

Strengthening Your Quads On Your Own This acKvity will reinforce the Rigor/ Relevance Framework and encourage you to think about creaKve instrucKonal acKviKes that will raise your level of instrucKon and create real-‐world instrucKonal acKviKes.
Strengthening Your Quads Your Turn Materials: • Blank paper folded into fours. • Label each box. C D A B
Procedure • Working in your groups, brainstorm instrucKonal topics for any subject that is generally taught at low levels-‐Quadrant A. • Record each one on a separate sKcky note. • Select one of your topics that is a good candidate for improvement. Write it in Quadrant A. • Write 1 acKvity in each box according to the Rigor/ Relevance Framework. (5min.) • When you hear the Kmer, pass your paper clockwise to the nearest group. Repeat. Go around as many Kmes as Kme permits. • If Kme permits, on the back of your paper make a list of real-‐world applicaKons of academic skills.
