Session 228
Thursday, April 14, 2016: 2:45 PM-4:00 PM

Co-Presenters: Shelbi K. Cole and Alicia Farmer

Imagine you could watch the lesson you were going to teach, before you taught it. In a collaborative lesson study around an Illustrative Mathematics task, a diverse group of educators did just that. From design, implementation, observation, and revision, participants will engage in a lesson study process and leave with a vision for personal implementation.
