Lesson Study: Collaboration for Improving Teaching
           Tamara Sniad, Temple University, PA

ABSTRACT  
Lesson study is gaining attention as a collaborative approach to teacher professional development.  
This article explores the lesson study experiences of veteran urban teachers participating in 
a school-university PDS partnership.  After engaging in a cooperative, structured cycle of teaching, 
reflecting, and revising the same lesson, the participants self-report gains in their teaching repertoire 
as well as perspectives on studentsí classroom behaviors.
