Students must also know how to investigate, experiment, solve problems, and deepen their understanding of the content. They need to be able to apply their learning to authentic, reality-based situations.

It includes: Explicit steps for implementation Recommendations for monitoring if students are able to generate and test hypotheses Adaptations for students who struggle, have special needs, or excel in learning Examples and nonexamples from classroom practice Common mistakes and ways to avoid them The Essentials for Achieving Rigor series of instructional guides helps educators become highly skilled at implementing, monitoring, and adapting instruction. Put it to practical use immediately, adopting day-to-day examples as models for application in your own classroom.
