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 self-reflection and critical thinking through very personal collaboration with their colleagues and structured observation of their students. Lesson study has the power to transform the life of a school. Participants in this process form a team, develop learning goals, design a lesson, plan how to implement the lesson and collect data, teach and observe the lesson, analyze and revise the lesson and document and disseminate findings with colleagues.
