The Teacher Development Trust, the independent national charity for teacher training and professional development, is supporting the work of the London Schools Excellence Fund (LSEF).
David Weston, Chief Executive, has outlined what “lesson study” is in the December issue of TES and the five questions you should ask yourself if you are going to give it a try.
Teachers are exploring this approach more as they benefit from being more actively involved in teacher improvement as opposed to being passively watched in ‘lesson observations’ by senior leadership team members.
This peer observation approach, in which teachers work collaboratively to improve their practice through watching and adapting each others’ lessons, is being utilised in a number of LSEF projects.
