Because of #MTBoS, I met @AlexOverwijk at Twitter Math Camp in Jenks, OK in July 2014. One afternoon, Alex, @gwaddellnvhs, and I spent time talking about Lesson Study.
Because of #MTBoS, I am on my way to Ottawa, Ontario to spend the next two days participating in a Lesson Study at Glebe Collegiate Institute; otherwise known as Alex’s school.
Lesson Study offers educators an incredible opportunity to learn from and with other educators. The collaboration, the conversation about the important work we do, the opportunity to explore ideas and try stuff out and see what happens, and to examine how all of the layers, pieces, and components of instruction move students’ learning during a lesson is something more of us should have the chance to do.
It’s going to be AWESOME.
