The Rigor-Relevance Framework is a fourfold developed by the International Center for Leadership in Education (www.leadered.com). It is an instrument to aid in planning and evaluation for teachers and their students. It is composed of
- Acquisition: Low rigor and low relevance
- Application: Low rigor and high relevance
- Assimilation: High rigor and low relevance
- Adaptation: High rigor and high relevance
Rigor (from low to high) is said to be based on the six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy of Thinking (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation; or revised as remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate, create).
Relevance (from low to high) is said to be based on Daggett’s Application Model (knowledge in one discipline, apply in discipline, apply across disciplines, apply to real-world predictable situations, apply to real-world predictable situations).
There seems to be quite a bit of information associated with this center so I’ll need to look at it some more!
Compare to other learning cycles (I thought I had more than one…)
Also I’d like to compare this with Whitehead’s Criteria of Metaphysical Theories…
