Lesson Study for Special Needs and Inclusive Education


Lesson Study

Inter-Professional Lesson Study

Norwich et al. (2018) describes the use of lesson study (LS) in which teachers collaborate with practitioner educational psychologists (EPs) to develop their teaching knowledge and practices. This study evaluated how EPs join teachers in LS teams using working memory and other knowledge to inform the teaching of pupils with learning difficulties. The paper illustrates the potential of an inter-professional LS study to embody collaborative reflective practice to improve the teaching of pupils with learning difficulties.
