Fang, Y., Lee, C. K.-E., Sharifah Thalha Syed Haron, Wang, X., & Arasaratnam, C. (2009, May). The implementation of lesson study as a teacher-directed form of instructional improvement in a primary school in Singapore (Report No. CRP 19/05 JW and CRP 11/06 FYP). National Institute of Education (Singapore), Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice.
This report highlights the major findings of a two-year CRPP-funded intervention project in which researchers worked closely with a primary school to introduce Lesson Study as a tool for teacher learning and community building. The findings are presented through a survey study of teachers' perception of Lesson Study; two case studies of the knowledge construction and community building processes in two sampled Lesson Study teams, one in English Language and one in Mathematics and a methodological exploration that attempted to represent the instructional improvement in four mathematics research lessons from both quantitative and qualitative perspectives. A video case intended to be used as a tool to support teacher development was developed to document the learning of a mathematics topic through the experience of a Lesson Study team. Its components and development process are also illustrated.
