What is Lesson Study?

Teachers can plan, execute, and reflect on a hybrid lesson. In a large school, they might all plan the same lesson. In a smaller school where no teachers teach the same grade/subject, they might simply use some of the same strategies for building student engagement and interaction and then reflect on the results.
