Kawana Academy of Arts and Sciences in Lesson Study Network, Santa Rosa, California

KAAS has a schoolwide focus on supporting second language learners engage in discourse to explain their reasoning.  In mathematics the school uses two processes:  summer institutes for staff and during the school year lesson study to plan, analyze, and revise instruction based on evidence from students - observations in classrooms, student interviews, and student work samples.  Technology is used as a tool to record students at work and to analyze and plan instruction.
