Becoming Students of Our Students - The Power of Lesson Study!

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Akihiko Takahashi shared that good teaching is easy to talk about, but very hard to do. Teaching mathematics in an equitable way is an art and science in becoming a student of your students. Lesson study supports equitable mathematics instruction as it is a system of collaborative efforts and live instruction that provide growth in teachers’ mathematical knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, and collegial coaching. The experience of lesson study helps us move away from the “what” to the “how” to teach that promotes and allows for student thinking to be visible.

Attendees will experience key milestones of the lesson study cycle as they collaboratively work with their peers to develop a problem of practice, conduct empathy interviews with focal students, draft an equity theme and build a draft research lesson that they could further develop for their own schools/classrooms.
