Make the Way (Year 2)


"The true purpose of lesson study is to gain new knowledge for teaching and learning... It helps to build the knowledge and expertise of mathematics teaching and learning."  (Takahashi, McDougall, 2016)

The purpose of this studio is to guide CA MSP Make the Way lesson studies with year two's focus on engaging students in productive struggle. During this iteration of lesson study, professional learning will study measurement learning issues as well as different aspects of productive struggle while continuing to build student agency, authority, and identity.

This lesson study model follows the successful Japanese lesson study model.  One of the two forms of professional development proven as having an effective impact on student learning by What Works Clearinghouse.
