    Our Practice
    Lesson Study Teams must have a professional learning goal which is linked to school’s professional learning goal. This is also called the research theme.
    Lesson Study in Ateneo Grade School, Manila
    The Grade 5 Science Lesson Study team set as their professional learning goal how to enhance students’ higher-order thinking ability.
  • 18. Deepening
    1
    Our Practice
    The professional learning goal is based on ideal and actual student characteristics linked to school’s vision and subject’s focus.
    The professional learning goal is broad but not vague.
    One way to deepen our practice is to use professional learning goal to have a coherent and outcome-oriented professional learning.
    Public Research Lesson at Middle School Attached to Tsukuba University, Tokyo
    Schools in Japan typically use the same research theme for several years.

    Our Practice
    Lesson Planning Meetings
    Lesson Planning meetings are ‘study’ sessions.
    Look at how the textbooks and other curriculum materials engage students, if student engagement is the professional learning goal.
    Learn from each other.
    Learn by reflecting on our own previous practice.

    Our Practice
    Ateneo Grade School, Manila
    How to enhance thinking skills when students are listing down differences between when they were infants and now (11-year olds).
    One way to deepen our practice is to adopt a ‘study’ approach during lesson study.

    Our Practice
    Post-Lesson Discussion & Lesson Refinement Meetings
    Post-Lesson Discussion focuses on data from Research Lesson
    Pathlight School
  • 22. Janice saved some money on Monday. She saved $3 more on Tuesday than on Monday. Subsequently, she saved $3 more each day then the day before. By Thursday, she had saved $100. How much money did she saved on Thursday?

    Our Practice
    Post-Lesson Discussion & Lesson Refinement Meetings
    2. Lesson Refinement focuses on what-ifs
    What if the lesson is taught again to similar students under similar conditions?
    What if the lesson is taught under other conditions?
    One way to deepen our practice is to have a more structured meetings.
    What if virtual manipulative is used instead of base ten materials? What if this is an LSM class? What if this is an enrichment lesson? Lesson refinement meetings is filled with what-if type discussions.

    Our Practice
    Post-Lesson Discussion & Lesson Refinement Meetings
    Suggested Protocols
    Chairperson reminds the group of the professional learning goals.
    Research teacher tells the group changes made during lesson.
    Group members shares one observation each related to professional learning goal.
    Knowledgeable Other synthesizes the discussion.
    One way to deepen our practice is to learn to synthesize discussions into form of useable knowledge.

    Our Practice
    What’s Next …?
    After lesson study
    Professional learning continues at the personal level which results in accepting or rejecting tentative knowledge that emerged from lesson study.
    At the school level
    relevant data is used for efficacy study
    long-term perspective in data collection
    use categories rather than taking averages
    One way to deepen our practice is to be precise in measuring student outcomes.
