     What is Lesson Study?
￿A   model of professional development
  carried out by teachers in their own schools,
  with their own students and colleagues, in
  their own classrooms.
￿ Is a group of teachers working
  collaboratively to plan, teach, observe and
  analyze lessons.
￿ Investigates the relationship between
  teaching and learning.

            Lesson Study Cycle
 Phase 1: Lesson Planning

￿ Plan a research lesson
￿ Set the lesson objective

￿ Plan the steps of the lesson

￿ Anticipate student responses

￿ Determine teacher and classroom

￿ Determine data to be collected and how

￿ Usually takes one or more days before
  Phase 2

Ø“ We would like to research how to help students become
strong readers with a love of learning from text.”
Ø“ We would like to research how to help students cultivate
friendships and enjoy learning with one another.”
Ø“ We would like to research how to build students’ number
sense and ability to do simple mental computations with addition,
subtraction, multiplication, and division.”
Ø“ We would like to research how to help students write freely
without inhibition and develop a relaxed attitude toward writing.”
Ø“ We would like to research how to help students understand
and apply the scientific method, as well as recognize and
appreciate science in their daily lives.”
Ø“ We would like to research how to help students understand
and enjoy mathematics and recognize mathematics in their daily
lives.”
Ø“ We would like to cultivate both problem-seekers and problem
-solvers in our students.”
 Phase 2: Observation and
     Data Collection
￿ Lesson is taught as planned
￿ Team members observe students and record
  observations
￿ Move into final phase

￿ Phase 2: Observation and Data Collection
￿ Define Phase 2: Observation and Data
  Collection – Use a Circle Map
Phase 3: Data Analysis and
         Debrief
￿ Compile and analyze the data collected
￿ Discuss evidence of student learning or difficulty

￿ Correlate student response with the instruction

￿ Hypothesize why students might have responded
  as they did
￿ Integrate what was learned into a revised lesson
  and/or future lesson planning
￿ Each participants notes at least one teaching
  practice he she wants to continue to explore
