"Rigor Redefined"
By Tony Wagner
In the article "Rigor Redefined" by Tony Wagner, he talks about what students will need to learn to be successful in the 21st-century. Students will need to work well with others and be critical thinkers to be successful no days. You need to be able to work well with others and in a group as a team and i connected this back to school because of how much group work schools have been doing lately. This article mattered to students because of the stuff they will need to start learning and how much group work there is, this also means that the teacher will have to change the curriculum to benefit the students the best sometimes also. I was thinking about the article "Keyboard vs Pen" by 21st Century Learning because students should be able to use technology and learn about it at school to be successful in the real world also. One of the most important things that was in the article was imagination because that will get you really far in today's world since people are looking for so many ways to improve and make lives easier. Clearly, there are things that schools need to focus on teaching the kids and helping them prepare for the present and future.


  1. Hey, it's Danielle. I agree with you. Many businesses are looking for new creative employees. They are all looking for new and original ideas, or as you said, they're looking for ways to improve things and make life easier. In what ways do you think schools can help you to prepare better for the present and future.

  2. I think that school should take a poll or something to know how people learn and use the top two learning styles to tech most of the classes.
