Lesson study is a popular professional development approach in Japan whereby teachers collaborate to study content, instruction, and how students solve problems and reach for understanding in order to improve elementary mathematics instruction and learning in the by:   Japanese Lesson Study has proved to be one successful means.

This book supports the growing movement of lesson study to improve the quality of mathematics education from the original viewpoints of Japanese educators who have been engaging in lesson study in mathematics for professional development and curriculum implementation.

Lesson study is a form of professional development Japanese teachers use to help them improve and to incorporate new ideas and methods into their teaching.

It turns out math lessons in Japan used to look a lot like lessons in the U.S. — lots of memorizing formulas, not much hands-on learning or exploring mathematical ideas and concepts.

Japanese Lesson Study: Teacher Professional Development through Communities of Inquiry Brian Doig and Susie Groves Deakin University Japanese Lesson Study has come under increasing attention from educators in the West and throughout South-East Asia since it was revealed outside Japan through the release of the TIMSS Video Study.

The Japanese Lesson Study model has been advocated in the UK for some time both by the National College for Teaching and Leadership and its predecessor organisations.

The outline of the approach is as follows: A systematic review (Wai Ming Cheung, ) looked across 9 quantitative studies and concluded that Lesson Study and Learning Study. Lesson Study functions as a means of enabling teachers to develop and study their own teac hing practices.

It is this function to which its international attention can be attributed. The Process of Lesson Study Lesson Study consists of preparation, actual class, and class review sessions in Japanese “kyozai kenkyu”, “koukai/kenkyuFile Size: 1MB.

Interest in lesson study began to increase in the U.S. after American students performed poorly in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMMS) in Some U.S.

teachers went to Japan to videotape lessons, because Japanese students consistently score well on TIMMS' exams. Lesson study is a popular professional development approach in Japan whereby teachers collaborate to study content, instruction, and how students solve problems and reach for understanding in order to improve elementary mathematics instruction and learning in the classroom.

This book is the first comprehensive look at the system and process of lesson study in Japan. One of the critical elements of Japanese Lesson Study is detailed and careful planning of the research lesson with an explicit focus on the mathematics and students’ mathematical thinking (Doig.

A Mathematics Leader's Guide to Lesson Study in Practice is a book containing detailed guides to each phase of the cycle, stories of lesson study team practice, strategies for facilitation, practical advice for teams, leaders, and administrators on implementing lesson study, and much more.

Lesson study. This book brings Japanese Lesson Study in Mathematics book and builds on the current research efforts on adaptation, conceptualization, and theorization of Lesson Study (LS).

It synthesizes and illustrates major perspectives for theorizing LS and enriches the conceptualization of LS by interpreting the activity as it is used in Japan and China from historical and cultural perspectives. I visited Ghana in and and observed the actual mathematics lessons there.

Since I stayed for only a short time during each visit, two weeks and three weeks, respectively, I was not able to observe very many lessons. However, I would like to describe several of the lessons I. This book is intended to assist teachers and authors of textbooks in developing strategies to teach the multiplication of natural numbers based on the experience of the Lesson Study in Japan, showing how this approach inspired innovative teaching proposals in Ibero-America.

est, not only in Lesson Study, but also in the typical struc-ture of Japanese mathematics lessons. Independently, some educators such as Lewis also noticed the significance of Japanese Lesson Study (Lewis and Tsuchida, ).

Since then many mathematics teachers and teacher educators around the world have been involved in Les-Cited by: Lesson Study is a Japanese model of teacher professional development that teachers engage in to improve the quality of their teaching as well as to enrich students' learning experiences.

Lesson study is a popular professional development approach in Japan whereby teachers collaborate to study content, instruction, and how students solve problems and reach for understanding in order to improve elementary mathematics instruction and learning in the classroom.

The example of Japanese lesson study, described in this book, is a powerful one for teachers, administrators, professional developers, and policymakers in the United States. In chapter one, Stigler and Hiebert set the stage for their argument and introduce the idea of the teaching gap.

In addition, Yoshida coauthored a book entitled "Lesson Study: A Japanese Approach to Improving Mathematics Teaching and Learning," () based on this dissertation research on lesson study in Japan with Clea Fernandez of Teachers College, Colombia University.

Lesson study is a Japanese approach to improve teaching and learning mathematics through a particular form of activity by a group of teachers. It provides teachers with key learning opportunities in working collaboratively with their colleagues to study subject matter, students’ thinking and learning, and how to change classroom instruction.

She is a graduate of Harvard University (B.A.) and Stanford University (Ph.D) and the author of more than 40 publications on Cited by: Japanese lesson study in mathematics: its impact, diversity and potential for educational improvement.

Since the publication of The Teaching Gap, Lesson Study has become used much more widely across the western world as a powerful method for the professional development of mathematics teachers.

The book identified the practice of Lesson Study as one of the contributing factors that has led to the high quality of teaching in Japan. She has conducted research in Japanese and U.S.

schools for more than three decades, publishing the first English-language accounts of Japanese lesson study. A research scientist at Mills College, Lewis has developed video and print materials that have introduced many educators to lesson study.

A unique opportunity to learn from lesson study and mathematics expert, Professor Akihiko Takahashi Two exciting lesson study events in December to explore the Japanese approach to problem solving in mathematics, lesson study as a tool to.

In their book, The Teaching Gap, James Stigler and James Hiebert look at lesson study in a Japan elementary school. ‘The premise behind lesson study is simple: if you want to improve teaching, the most effective place to do so is in the context of a classroom lesson.
