You can’t dispel students’ misperceptions about difficult coursework if you’re unaware of what these misperceptions are. This program discusses common mismatched definitions of rigor and strategies for bridging the divide between teacher definitions and student definitions. By leveraging these strategies, you’ll be better able to improve students’ motivation and build stronger classroom connections.
