This session is a part of our special Wednesday focus on professional development in mathematics. It will take place at Hillcrest Elementary School in San Francisco.

In a Lesson Study cycle, the planning team works over a period of weeks to study the content, curriculum, and their inquiry question (e.g., how to support mathematical perseverance). This groundwork informs their plan for the research lesson and larger unit. For example, teachers identify the key learnings expected within the unit and how each lesson contributes to the unit goals, the data that will illuminate their inquiry question, the changes in student thinking anticipated during the lesson, and the teacher moves and lesson features that will elicit student thinking and enable students to revise and build their understanding. During the research lesson, the observers become the eyes and ears for the planning team, carefully documenting the learning of specific students and connecting it to lesson features. As a participant today, you will get to watch the lesson and participate in the post-lesson discussion, which follows a protocol focused on sharing and discussing evidence about student thinking and learning. Elements of the post-lesson discussion include reflections from the Lesson Study team; comments from invited observers who share their curated notes, modeling how to share observations and push the group's thinking about the inquiry; and final comments from a knowledgeable outsider.
