Japanese Lesson Study Summary
Tuesday, July 2, 2002What we did:
We went over the four roles of teacher in a Japanese lesson (from Aspects of Mathematics Education...)
We read through the Tools for Planning and Describing Study Lessons: http://www.tc.columbia.com
We discussed these tools.
We ended at 2:00 in order for people to attend the Lesson Study Dialogue at the Marriot this afternoon.Highlights of Discussion
Lesson Study Process will help us maintain awareness and insight into our daily planning and teaching. For instance, paying attention to our use of the chalkboard (or overheads or posterboard) as a way to organize a record of the day's learning. We paid particular attention to the lesson plan template and the guiding questions. We will continue to thinking about how we would like to use these resources in our planning.Resources
