Teacher and Teaching Quality

Lesson Study

Learning Point Associates has worked for the past 20 years to address the issue of teacher and teaching quality, both in the classroom and in the broader research and policy community.

Our goal remains to enhance the abilities of today's teachers through professional development, research, and building systemic solutions around some of the most critical issues related to teacher quality, including:

  • Supply and Demand
  • Teacher Preparation
  • Recruitment and Retention

Learning Point Associates has offered technical assistance for addressing the need to improve teaching practices with the successful workshops Lesson Study and Data Retreats.

These professional development opportunities engage teachers in activities designed to increase their familiarity with classroom techniques and help them to understand how to translate data into useful information.
