Rigor by Design, Not Chance: Supporting Deeper Thinking Through Actionable Instruction and Assessment

Today, we expect every student to be ready for challenges of the 21st centuryto learn more, to master new technologies, to understand more deeply, and to transfer what they've learned to real-world contexts. Integrating 5 evidence-based "teacher moves" in an Actionable Assessment Cycle can build a supportive classroom culture for deeper thinking and self-directed learning. A range of strategies appropriate for all students will be modeled and practiced for each teacher move: asking probing questions, building schemas, considering strategic scaffolding, developing complex tasks, and engaging students in metacognition and reflection.
