What do you already know
about Lesson Study?
What opportunities are you
most excited about?
“Lesson study is a form of long-term
professional development in which
teams of teachers collaboratively
plan, research, and study their
lesson instruction as a way to
determine how students learn best.
It is a process that deepens the
interaction of a school’s
professional learning community by
developing the habits of selfreflection and critical thinking
through very personal collaboration
with their colleagues and structured
observation of their students.”
