Teacher to Teacher is a facilitator's guide and video that equips teacher leaders and professional developers to facilitate Lesson Study—the prime teacher professional development model of Japan—for practical use in American schools.

In Lesson Study, teachers work together and plan, teach, observe, and refine a single lesson that is part of a larger unit of instruction. Focus is on the lesson and on student thinking, rather than on the teacher's performance, to ultimately improve instruction.

Teacher to Teacher accomplishes the following:

  • Addresses assumptions about this job-embedded professional development process.
  • Provides an understanding of the Lesson Study process.
  • Provides participants with the in-depth knowledge and tools they'll need to do Lesson Study in their own classrooms and an understanding of how Teacher to Teacher translates Lesson Study for success in American schools, while keeping the integrity of the process intact.
