Description

Classroom observation makes teaching and learning more visible. It encourages colleagues to collaborate to improve teacher practice and student learning. But which classroom observation strategy should you choose?

 

These resources provide an introduction to some common observation strategies. Combining instructional guides and accompanying videos, the resources explain all you need to know to choose and implement an appropriate classroom observation strategy for your school.

 

What is Lesson Study? A small team of teachers working together in a systematic cycle of planning, teaching, observing, refining and reviewing specific lessons in order to examine their practice and improve their impact on student learning.
