About the Author:

Jennifer Stepanek is a writer, editor, and researcher with Education Northwest in Portland, Oregon. She is the lead author of Leading Lesson Study: A Practical Guide for Teachers and Facilitators (2007), published by Corwin Press. Jennifer has worked with lesson study teams at a variety of sites in the Northwest to explore how teachers in the United States are adapting the Japanese model to fit their contexts and needs. Jennifer has written and edited a number of articles on lesson study and is also the co-author of An Invitation to Lesson Study, an electronic resource designed to help facilitators and other professional development providers introduce lesson study to others. Her previous projects include serving as the editor of Northwest Teacher, a math and science journal and writing publications for the It’s Just Good Teaching series―research-based monographs on mathematics and science teaching.

Review:

"Guides educational leaders in creating successful lesson study in American schools. The authors provide readers with a compelling rationale for the process, offer experience-tested tools, and suggest ways to address commonly-occurring challenges. This book will assist teachers, and those who support them, in understanding and implementing all phases of lesson study, from initial planning through sharing with others what was learned." (Dennis Sparks, Executive Director 2006-08-01)

"Rightly argues that the quality of education can be better enhanced through the powerful and practical learning inherent in well-done lesson study than ′teacher-proofing′ and other attempts to change the surface features of schools. Teachers need to help set the agenda for learning that is focused on the problems of their classrooms, have an opportunity to collaborate, and observe why lessons do or do not work in order to improve student learning. No process affords a more comprehensive and powerful learning opportunity than lesson study." (Alice Gill, Associate Director, Educational Issues Department 2006-08-01)

"A powerful teacher professional development process that focuses collaborative teams directly on the classroom, and the perfect tool for teachers, professional developers and team leaders. Gives you everything you need to use lesson study to support teachers in thinking deeply about practice. I can′t wait to start using Leading Lesson Study with the science teachers I work with!" (Roberta Jaffe, Science Education Coordinator, New Teacher Center 2006-08-02)

"Educators at all grade levels will appreciate the instruction that uses examples from US classrooms throughout." (California Bookwatch, March 2007 2007-04-11)

“Fulfills the subtitle’s promise to be a ‘practical guide,’ with numerous samples, examples, and worksheets. The authors have succeeded in creating a guide with rich potential to increase both the quantity and quality of lesson study work done in the United States.” (Education Review, November 2007 2008-01-29)
