One of the key components to Lesson Study is team collaboration. Find out more about strategies that facilitate collaboration and ownership over the Research Lesson.

Lesson Study is teachers working collaboratively to:

  • Define attitudes and habits that will help students become "ideal learners."
  • Analyze student needs and develop lessons and learning environments to meet those needs
  • Consider long-term goals for students, bring those goals to life in actual "research lessons," and collaboratively observe, discuss, and refine the lessons
  • Conduct the lesson, with one team member teaching and others gathering evidence on student learning and development
