A Hong Kong Case of Lesson Study--Benefits and Concerns
Lee, Jackie F. K.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v24 n5 p1115-1124 Jul 2008
In recent years, there has been a feeling that effective teachers can be fostered by grounding professional development in actual classroom practice. This paper reports how a group of teachers adopted a lesson study approach and worked collaboratively so as to improve their class instruction on "wh"-question formation. Teachers' reflections indicate that the collaborative environment throughout the study enabled them to gain insights into how to improve their teaching strategies. Also identified are some of the problems faced by teachers, which may undermine the gains of lesson study.
