What Is 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.


In St Raphael's, we take an area in which we want to improve and complete some action research around this topic based on key questions.
