1 Sharing Experience of doing Lesson Study: What is going on in Malaysia? AP Dr LIM Chap SamSchool of Educational StudiesUniversiti Sains Malaysia
2 Lesson study projects in Malaysia:. Since when and How many Lesson study projects in Malaysia: * Since when and How many? *What have we done?
3 An exploratory Lesson study on 5 Malaysian trainee teachers (2004) 3
4 1st Lesson Study project (2004-5) Two secondary schools in Kedah, 16 mathematics teachers, positive feedback4
5 APEC Tsukuba International Conference "Innovative Teaching Mathematics through Lesson Study“ at Tokyo, Japan (2006 )5
6 APEC Tsukuba International Conference "Innovative Teaching Mathematics through Lesson Study“ at Tokyo, Japan (2006 )5 years project:Year 1: Jan-Jun 2006-- promoting good practice through Lesson StudyYear 2: Dec August 2007-- focus on mathematical thinkingYear 3: focus on communication in mathematicsYear 4: focus on evaluation/assessmentYear 5: focus on integration6
7 Promoting Lesson Study in Malaysia: 2006 February APEC project phase I– LS group in a residential school, focus on good practices
8 2007 APEC project II: focus on mathematical thinking One SJKC in Penang – 2 classes, 8 mathematics teachers
9 Innovative Use of GSP through Lesson Study Collaboration (2007-8) Set up 3 Lesson Study groups in 3 secondary schools;Result: a book of experience sharing, a CD of GSP sketches and an example of Lesson Study cycle (movie)
10 A collaboration between SEAMEO-RECSAM and PPIP, USM 2008: Innovations for teaching and learning primary mathematics through lesson study focusing on mathematical thinking and communication10 Lesson Study groups in 10 Primary schools in PenangA collaboration betweenSEAMEO-RECSAM and PPIP, USM
11 Lesson study projects in Malaysia: How many? Since , there are at least10 primary schools and5 secondary schoolsin Penang and Kedah participated in Lesson Study projects. Also 1 secondary and 1 primary school in Miri Sarawak.- Two PhD + 1 Med students graduated/graduating.
12 Issues and Challenges of Lesson Study TimeCommitmentAdministrative supports
13 Future plans African-Asia dialogue, 22-26 March 2010, Penang, Malaysia Proposal for collaboration projects among A-A countries:Title: Promoting collaborative teaching culture through Lesson Study: Focus on developing student thinking in four major school subjects.
14 Objectives of the Project to promote collaborative teaching culture among teachers in low performing schools through setting up lesson study groups. These Lesson Study group will provide a platform for teacher discussion and reflection on their teaching practices. Through peer support and collaboration, teachers’ content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge could be improved.This project focuses on promoting student thinking in four major school subjects (Malay language, English, Mathematics and Science) through ways of professional development such as Lesson Study.
15 The PlanThe project collaborators: USM, SEAMEO-RECSAM, MOE, State Education Department, Majlis Guru Cemerlang, primary Schools.The Lesson Study team in each school will consist of:school administrator: Head master, senior assistant, department head;Subject teachersExternal adviser – either Guru Cemerlang, lecturer, JPN officer, postgraduate students/teachers with LS experience
16 The procedure1. Workshop/seminar : aims to introduce Lesson Study concepts to all Lesson Study team members i.e. school administrators; subject teachers; Guru Cemerlang, lecturer, JPN officer, postgraduate students;An open class demonstration of Lesson Study will also be given in the seminar to provide examples. 2. Lesson Study cycles in schools –Continuous monitoring and support by external advisers; 3. A series of workshops –aims to provide inputs that promote student thinking (e.g. mathematical thinking, scientific thinking and literacy0 4 Year end conference: aims to disseminate research products (e.g. lesson plans + video lessons + teaching aids); sharing of experiences and reflections among teachers/Lesson Study team members
17 Thank you for your attention Hope everybody enjoy doing Lesson Study like these teachers
