Lesson Study is a professional development model that immerses teachers in a cycle of instructional improvement focused on planning, observing, and revising "research lessons." Over the course of a year, teachers in grade level teams write, study, teach, revise, and re-teach lessons, focusing their energies on improving mathematics instruction. While the lesson is taught by one of the teachers, others observe and collect data about student responses – a practice that leads to lesson revision. This long-term process allows a team of teachers to think carefully about orchestrating the complexities of instruction and to study the impact on student understanding.
