"Rigor is Not a Four-Letter Word is a tremendous resource for any educator willing to do what is right for students. Although change is hard, the book dispels rigor myths and provides examples, guidance, and support for those who want to increase rigor for ALL students. You won't teach the same way after reading this book!" - Dr. Jolie D. Hardin, Director of Leadership Development, Henry County Schools, GA "Rigor has turned into another catch phrase used frequently by educational leaders; however, many people have differing views on what it actually means. Rigor is Not a Four-Letter Word does an incredible job of defining what rigor is and is not AND provides specific examples for how to apply to the classroom setting. The book is extremely comprehensive and offers tons of useful information for educators of all experience levels." - Nikki Mouton, Associate Superintendent, Gwinnett County Public Schools, GA
