American Radioworks just came out with a wonderful documentary, “Teaching Teachers”, which focuses on Lesson Study. Well, it’s not just about Lesson Study – roughly the first third is a very interesting look at teacher preparation – but the remainder, starting around 25:00, looks at Lesson Study, with snippets from a research lesson at O’Keeffe School of Excellence here in Chicago, and interviews with Catherine Lewis, Akihiko Takahashi, and Tom McDougal. Kudos to the reporter and producer, Emily Hanford, for succesfully conveying what Lesson Study is and why it is important.
