Lesson Study: Are Students Thinking and Learning?

Presented by: Suzanne Ferrell-Locke, Bob Lutz, Anne Winston

Lesson Study is a method of professional learning used to improve educational experiences of students. Teachers intensively collaborate on the design of a lesson and anticipate student responses. The lesson is presented to students and their interactions and behaviors are observed and recorded. This data, coupled with discussion among the observers, is used to determine if the lesson impacted student thinking, learning and understanding. The entire Lesson Study process provides the basis for future collaborations and improved student learning. Click here for the PowerPoint.
