The first in our Best Practice communication tools series of Video Vignettes, focuses on What is Lesson Study: developing the "eyes to see children"? View lesson study definitions and videos (with scripts and storyboards).

Lesson Study is teachers working collaboratively to:

  • define attitudes and habits that will help students become "ideal learners."
  • analyze student needs and develop lessons and learning environments to meet those needs
  • consider long-term goals for students, bring those goals to life in actual "research lessons," and collaboratively observe, discuss, and refine the lessons
  • conduct the lesson, with one team member teaching and others gathering evidence on student learning and development.
The following video segments (with script and storyboard) explain:

  • What is Lesson Study?
  • What is included in the Lesson Script?
  • What is the importance of team collaboration?
  • What is the role of observers?
  • What is the purpose of debriefing?
  • What differences are there between teaching the research lessons the first and the second time?
  • How do you measure the success of a Lesson Study?
