CSDElementary Math Academy Common Core Practice Standards 10 Instructional Shifts Increasing UNDERSTANDING Accessible Mathematics Shifting our focus…
Professional Development • Let’s revisit the goals you set for yourself yesterday morning: What do you plan to learn from the next two days? • Identify 2-3 instructional ideas related to your own professional development in teaching math that you’d like to focus on the next two days How did you do?
Professional Development • What are some action items and goals you want to attend to for math this month? • What are some action items goals you want to attend to for math this year? Record your thoughts in your math journal. Partner share.
How can we improve outcomes related to professional development?
Who will you be responsible for sharing this information with? • Who will you be sharing the math supplies with? THANKS!

Peer Coaching • Pre-observation discussion • Identify “look for’s” • Observation • Focus on instructional practices and student learning • Post-observation • Describe what was observed • Celebrate successes • Facilitate reflection for improvement
Lesson Study • Lesson study is a process in which a group of teachers jointly • designs, • teaches, • observes, • analyzes, • & revises a single class lesson, called a Research Lesson.
Origins of Lesson Study In Japan, lesson study is a well developed system for improving teaching and learning at the elementary and junior high level.
The Lesson Study Cycle: What Teachers Actually Do in Lesson Study • Choose Topic & Develop Learning Goals • Design the Lesson & the Study • Teach & Gather Evidence • Analyze Evidence & Revise the Lesson/Study • Teach & Study the Lesson Again • Document & Share the Research Lesson and the Study More information at http://www.uwlax.edu/sotl/lsp/intro.htm
Goal: A Knowledge Base for Teachers PEDAGOGICAL KNOWLEDGE BASE practical and accessible teaching & learning materials focused on student learning ; ; LESSON STUDY CLUSTERS focused on similar disciplines, topics, goals, etc. INDIVIDUAL LESSON STUDIES
Practitioner Knowledge Professional Knowledge Closing the Loop • Practical, concerned with daily teaching and learning issues • Detailed, concrete, specific, contextualized • Integrated(content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, and pedagogical content knowledge) • Public • Storable • Shareable • Verifiable, subject to replication and peer review • Systematic, principled, informed, theoretical, scholarly
A Knowledge & Community Building System n n CREATION EXCHANGE USE Moving from Practitioner to Professional Knowledge—and Back Again
Highlights • Lesson study provides a practical, integrated, and progressive model for professional pedagogical knowledge building across the disciplines. • Community building + knowledge building = Capacity building • The Math Support Wiki Page is intended to become a database of lesson plans/studies.
