2011 is coming and Pathlight School is ready to begin to use lesson study as a PLC tool.
Yesterday, all the teachers were given a briefing on the implementation of lesson study as a professional development tool. Previously, they have been given an overview on PLC and lesson study.
Today, I met briefly with the primary five mathematics PLC to get them started on the lesson study process. Next week, they will begin the lesson planning meeting. In this meeting, the team set their professional learning goal and selected the unit in which the research lesson will take place.
Next week, the team will look at how the textbooks deal with the unit they have selected.
