Lesson Study is a course of action where teachers work together to plan classroom lessons, observe the teaching and learning experience during the lesson, analyze the content and delivery, and then make changes in the lesson to make it better. At the heart of Lesson Study is the concept that all students can learn and all teachers can improve.
Lesson Study has both its benefits and hurdles. It may seem like an overwhelming process, but there is consensus that the teaching and learning process is significantly improved, and students are more engaged in the learning environment.
Mary Ellen Richichi, 5th grade teacher, explains the benefits she has seen with Lesson Study, “Your lessons come alive through Lesson Study… when the final lesson is completed there’s such passion and research into it that the kids are getting a wealth of knowledge compared to an individualized isolated lesson.”
