Lesson Study Overview Unlocking Minds Preparing Osceola County Students for a Bright Future Gladys Moreta K-12 Program Specialist Curriculum & Instruction
What is Lesson Study?
Lesson Study Professional Development Teachers Collaborating Planning Lessons Analyzing Lessons and student thinking Teaching Observing students reaction and engagement Investigates the relationship between teaching and learning.
What is Lesson Study? A model of professional development carried out by teachers in their own schools, with their own students and colleagues, in their own classrooms. Is a group of teachers working collaboratively to plan, teach, observe and analyze lessons. Investigates the relationship between teaching and learning. Pages 5-6
Why Do Lesson Study? Student Benefits Design effective lessons Notice when students aren’t learning Adjust their teaching in appropriate ways Clearer lesson objectives Straightforward and purposeful lesson structures Well-designed tasks that effectively get students to think, talk, and be active Teacher Benefits Constantly reflecting on and adapting their practice Interaction with colleagues Teachers fully inhabit their roles as investigators, facilitators, and experts of student learning Transform school faculties into true professional learning communities Page 7
Teach the Research Lesson Observe and Collect Data Compile and Analyze Data Discuss Implications Reflect on Learning Lesson Study Cycle Plan the Lesson Together Select the Teacher and Classroom Identify Data to Collect
Phase 1: Lesson Planning Plan a research lesson Set the lesson objective Plan the steps of the lesson Anticipate student responses Determine teacher and classroom Determine data to be collected and how Usually takes one or more days before Phase 2
Watch Video Phase 1: Lesson Planning Phase 1: Lesson Planning Define Phase 1: Lesson Planning – use a Circle Map
Examples of Research Focuses “ We would like to research how to help students become strong readers with a love of learning from text.” “ We would like to research how to help students cultivate friendships and enjoy learning with one another.” “ We would like to research how to build students’ number sense and ability to do simple mental computations with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.” “ We would like to research how to help students write freely without inhibition and develop a relaxed attitude toward writing.” “ We would like to research how to help students understand and apply the scientific method, as well as recognize and appreciate science in their daily lives.” “ We would like to research how to help students understand and enjoy mathematics and recognize mathematics in their daily lives.” “ We would like to cultivate both problem-seekers and problem- solvers in our students.”
Phase 2: Observation and Data Collection Lesson is taught as planned Team members observe students and record observations Move into final phase
Watch Video Phase 2: Observation and Data Collection Phase 2: Observation and Data Collection Define Phase 2: Observation and Data Collection – Use a Circle Map
Phase 3: Data Analysis and Debrief Compile and analyze the data collected Discuss evidence of student learning or difficulty Correlate student response with the instruction Hypothesize why students might have responded as they did Integrate what was learned into a revised lesson and/or future lesson planning Each participants notes at least one teaching practice he she wants to continue to explore

Lesson Study Implementation Plan Year 1 Staff Meeting Introducing Lesson Study2 hours Team Meeting: Preparing for Lesson Study1 ½ - 2 hours Lesson Study Cycle 1: Lesson Planning Observing and Data Collection Data Analysis and Debrief 3-4 hours 1 hour 2-3 hours Lesson Study Cycle 2: Lesson Planning Observing and Data Collection Data Analysis and Debrief 3-4 hours 1 hour 2-3 hours Team Meeting: Determining a Team Research Focus1 ½ - 2 hours Lesson Study Cycle 3: Lesson Planning Observation and Data Collection Data Analysis and Debrief 3-4 hours 1 hour 2-3 hours Pages 2-3
The Lesson Study Team Timeline Launch August-November Build the Team and Train Lesson Study Cycle 1 Developing January-March Lesson Study Cycle 2 Building April-June Lesson Study Cycle 3 Maintaining August 2012
Facilitator’s Next Steps Meet with administration to determine who to invite to the full day training. Ensure there are at least 4 teachers in each team. Guarantee teacher commit to the lesson study process. Follow-up with teachers through meetings, visits, and support
Plan of Action Use the Lesson Study Implementation Survey as a tool to guide you in the effective implementation of Lesson Study. Think about qualities that you will want to persevere to maintain and nurture. Think about obstacles that you may encounter and how you will address them.
Plan of Action Get Ready to Introduce Lesson Study to the schools Become familiar with the Data Collection instruments Determine Lesson Study Teams Prepare Teams to begin Lesson Study Set and Plan the First team Meetings and Lesson Study Cycles Schedule Lesson Study for the Year Pages 12-14
Prepare for Your Lesson Study Meetings Introducing Lesson Study Preparing for Lesson Study Lesson Study Cycle 1 Share with your colleagues Have FUN!! Pages 21-42
