Lesson Study and Singapore Math
Through lesson study we achieve a level of precision that makes teaching a profession,
We learn content, pedagogy, pedagogical content knowledge, also to collaborate professionally and to have a lens to look at children and curriculum materials.
Through this session, we get a glimpse of one professional development tool teachers in Singapore use. In terms of content, we considered addition at early grade levels and how making ten is a non negotiable.
In the lesson study discussed as a case study, we saw how teachers learn to move students away from counting to making ten which is critical. The use of ten frames and the choice of numbers allows more students to access the idea of making ten.
