How Many Seats? Excerpts from a Lesson Study Cycle

Facilitation Tools | Grades 4-9

A video by the Lesson Study Group at Mills College.


This video shows excerpts from a Lesson Study cycle that occurred during a 10-day summer workshop on Lesson Study and algebra. During the first days of the workshop, teachers solve and discuss algebra problems, study state mathematics standards, and identify elementary-grade concepts critical to students’ subsequent success in algebra. They study several existing lessons and choose one as the basis for their research lesson, taking it through two cycles of planning, teaching, observation, and reflection.
