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?
