The time to collaborate with colleagues has broadened my strengths as a teacher. It introduced me to tools I could never have dreamed of on my own. Observing and assessing student work was invaluable. I’ve never had so many minds working so hard on such a high cognitive level lesson.
I observed students without distraction and saw the variety and depth of learning. Collaborating with colleagues and other professionals allows me to reflect on my own teaching practices and my students’ learning.
The lesson study amplified my appreciation for editing my work and appreciating student understanding. I am more curious and less apprehensive in the task of teaching.
