In Lesson Study teachers:
- Think about the long-term goals of education - such as love of learning and respect for others;
- Carefully consider the goals of a particular subject area, unit or lesson (for example, why science is taught, what is important about levers, how to introduce levers);
- Plan classroom "research lessons" that bring to life both specific subject matter goals and long term goals for students; and
how students respond to these lessons - including their learning, engagement,
and treatment of each other.
