Our Work

The Lesson Study Group at Mills College, established in 1999, collaborates with educators to improve classroom instruction, conducts research, and develops materials to support professional learning and classroom instruction.  Much of our work is focused on translating, adapting and testing teaching and learning approaches from Japan.

The materials and information at this website represent the work of thousands of educators in Japan and the US. We regret that we cannot acknowledge all of them by name.
