Japanese Lesson Study
Friday, July 13
We watched a video in which Catherine Lewis described goal setting in the lesson-study process.
We discussed goals:
- Students focusing for more than 30 seconds
- Respect for each other's ideas
- Willingness to help
- Willingness to conjecture
- Independent thinkers
- Communicate, reason, connect, change representations
- Think mathematically
And discussed what characteristics we want in a topic:
A topic which will make the students think about:
- Patterns and relationships
Tom presented some of his research on Japanese and American calculus students.
