Prospective secondary mathematics teachers continue to lack images of "reformed" teaching. This investigation studied prospective teachers' development of reform-oriented teaching through Micro-teaching Lesson Study [MLS], an experience based on Japanese lesson study (Stigler and Heibert, 1999). A qualitative analysis of various data sources (video-taped lessons, written lesson plans and reflections, observations, and surveys) for 18 participants working in groups of three was conducted. Findings include growth in understanding and implementing reform-oriented teaching and development of subject matter knowledge. Participants perceived the experience and its components as beneficial in their development as teachers. (Contains 1 table.) [For complete proceedings, see ED496859.]
