Two years ago, our institute, the University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) published Lesson Study Book 1 which details our involvement in Lesson Study in the Philippines. Last year, when I was in Japan, we also published the sequel of this book titled “Lesson Study Book 2: Learning More Together, Growing in Practice.” The chapters in this book document the actual study experiences of teachers and students that highlight teaching and learning of science and mathematics through inquiry based problem-solving approaches from elementary and high school levels. It also discusses some research results.
Below are the titles of the chapters in this book. » Read more
To all my readers from the Philippines, our new book on Lesson Study is now off the press. The book is titled Lesson Study: Planning Together, Learning Together. It is a documentation of the actual experiences of teachers and students in mathematics and science classes as well as learning that arise while doing Lesson Study. It was published by the the University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED).
The book is 258 pages and costs Php300.00. You can buy it at the UP NISMED Bookstore in the University of the Philippines, Diliman.
By the way, I am also glad to tell that I am one of the writers of this book. 🙂
