Research Lesson Study

What is Research Lesson Study?

Lesson Study is a Japanese model of teacher-led research in which a triad of teachers work together to target an identified area for development in their students’ learning. Using existing evidence, participants collaboratively research, plan, teach and observe a series of lessons, using ongoing discussion, reflection and expert input to track and refine their interventions.
At Maplewell Hall School, the aim is to make the lesson study integral to teaching, learning and CPD in order to improve practice on a continuing basis.

The Process

Lesson study can be implemented in various ways and degrees within the school. At Maplewell Hall School teachers in the Maths, English and Science departments have been working on different lesson study projects.
