Find out more about the role data analysis plays in beginning a Lesson Study. See how one team of teachers sorts data to determine the focus of a Lesson Study, while you hear more about some of the challenges involved in running Lesson Study in a school.

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
