Lesson Study Book 2
Learning More Together, Growing in Practice Together

Complementary to the first volume, Lesson Study: Planning Together, Learning Together, the chapters in this book document the actual lesson study experiences of teachers and students that highlight the teaching and learning of science and mathematics through inquiry-based and problem-solving approaches from elementary and high school levels. A unique feature of this book is the inclusion of teachers’ experiences at the college level.

Done collaboratively and systematically, with more research rigor, the chapters in this second volume illustrate how both teachers and students learn through a critical examination of teachers’ instructional practices through lesson study. The editors and contributors of this volume found that, aside from being meaningful and personally fulfilling, the practice of lesson study affords the teachers involved an enjoyable experience as well.

Lesson Study Book 1
Planning Together, Learning Together

PhP 300.00

This book is a documentation of actual experiences of teachers and students in mathematics and science classes as well as learnings arising from these experiences. As a compilation, these chapters highlight the opportunities provided for students to learn mathematics through problem solving and science through inquiry. A common theme permeates all the chapters – both teachers and students are learning through lesson study.

This collection of chapters is an innovative initiative that lays the groundwork for an implementable model of lesson study in the Philippine setting. It is NISMED’s contribution to the ongoing search for a model of professional development that can be adapted in spite of large classes, dearth of resources, and a host of challenges faced by Filipino teachers.
