Lesson Study: Planning together, learning together

The book is the first of a 2-part lesson study publication of NISMED which aims to address the on-going search for a sustainable model of professional development of Filipino science and mathematics teachers facing numerous challenges such as large classes and lack of resources. The book documents actual learning experiences of university researchers, teachers, and students in science and mathematics classes through lesson study.

Lesson study is a form of reflective teaching cum lesson development through collaboration of teachers and researchers or “knowledgeable others” in a systematic assessment of classroom practices. It is a well-established strategy that promotes positive gains for both teachers and students from preschool to university levels.
