What Is Lesson Study?
Collaborative inquiry, focused on students
Lesson Study is an inquiry cycle that supports teachers to experiment, observe and improve. As teachers work together to study student learning, schools become places where both students and teachers are passionate about learning.
The research from the study phase helped me have a much deeper understanding of the standards. This kind of understanding lives with me beyond the Lesson Study cycle.
Planning a unit with my colleagues was incredibly valuable, especially when we discussed the student learning goals alongside our lesson design. We made informed choices about what makes the most sense for our students.
This is my favorite part of the cycle – the pay off – when I see how proud the students are to have so many observers caring about how they think.
Lesson Study is the deep dive that has touched on my values as a teacher and my knowledge foundation. When we reflect at the end of our Lesson Study cycle, it shows me how to carry my learning beyond the cycle and impacts how I show up daily for my students in the classroom.
