Lesson Study

author: Patsy Wang-Iverson
submitter: Everly Estes Broadway
description: "Lesson study is a new term for the old truism that two minds are better than one. It challenges the status quo of teachers and their classrooms as islands--relatively unaware of events on other islands--with students floating in between.
In the lesson study model of professional development, teachers connect with one another, with administrators and specialists, and even with other schools. All participants focus their energy on student learning in the classroom, and together they develop, implement, and refine the lesson being studied."
