What Do We Mean By “Rigor”? Using Challenging Texts in Responsive Ways: National Geographic Learning's Virtual Learning Series
Students need to read, discuss, and compose complex texts in order to meet content standards. But grade level texts may not be accessible, at least independently, for every child. Join author and researcher Nancy Frey for a discussion of the nature of challenging grade level texts, and methods for making ensuring that all students benefit.

Learning Intentions
• Understand the relationship between text readability, text complexity, and Depth of Knowledge measures.
• Use close and critical reading techniques to promote discussion and knowledge-building.
• Leverage MTSS/RTI Tier 2 supplemental supports for students who need pre-teaching and re-teaching.
• Examine Education Trust’s assignment analysis tool to ensure equity of expectations for all students.
