The Lesson Study Communities project provides two years of professional development and support to teams of middle and high school mathematics teachers who are involved in the lesson study model of professional development. The project operates in the Greater Boston area.
- Enhancing knowledge of mathematics and pedagogy
- Introducing teachers to lesson study
- Building a community of teachers interested in lesson study
- Learning how the Japanese lesson study model can be adapted to become a successful professional development model for U.S. secondary school mathematics teachers
Teacher teams will attend workshops at EDC and complete four or more full cycles of lesson study with the support of a team coach/adviser.
