Hiebert, James; Stigler, James W.
Elementary School Journal, v101 n1 p3-20 Sep 2000
The Third International Mathematics and Science Study Video Study of Teaching compared teacher development systems in the U.S., Japan, and Germany. Findings indicated that many American teachers believe they are changing the way they teach while they retain traditional practices. A research and development system was proposed for improving teaching by building on the Japanese process of lesson study. (Author/KB)
