Every Child Counts Lesson Study helps teachers:
Lesson Study gave me the opportunity to really see what is happening in my classroom and how children are learning. It has been absolutely invaluable and has allowed me to adapt my teaching to truly meet the needs of the individual children.
How Does it Work?
The ECC Trainer has an initial meeting with the Headteacher to help to prepare for Lesson Study.
As a school, you decide on a research focus that fits your school development plan. You identify one or more groups of three teachers who are willing to take risks, experiment and learn from their mistakes. The teachers work together to plan, teach and observe a Lesson Study cycle of three lessons, analysing their impact on pupils. They run three cycles over the year and share their learning with colleagues.
ECC Lesson Study has been developed by Edge Hill University, building on its extensive research programme funded by the Education Endowment Foundation 2013-15. Training is delivered by the University’s acclaimed Every Child Counts team, who have provided high-quality professional development to over 6,000 schools since 2008.
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
"The bespoke training had a direct impact on learning and whole-school improvement. CPD will never be the same!"
ECC Lesson Study is based on research into effective teacher professional development and on a trial funded by the Education Endowment Foundation.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
Teachers and schools can set their own evaluation criteria to suit the focus that they choose.
|Follow-up activities and support||
The sessions with the trainer are closely tied to three cycles of three research lessons which the teachers collaborate to plan, teach, observe, and evaluate.
“Many head teachers took an interest in the training and reported that it was the best they had ever seen.”
Training is delivered in-school by an ECC Trainer, after a preparatory meeting with the Headteacher.
Two training and support packages are available to schools:
Lesson Study only. The Trainer provides training in the Lesson Study process. The school chooses its own research focus and the Trainer helps the teachers to turn it into questions that can be investigated through Lesson Study. This package includes all of the above elements.
Lesson Study with subject knowledge. The Trainer provides training in the Lesson Study process. The school has agreed a research focus with the Trainer, who provides related subject knowledge professional development for the Lesson Study teachers to help them to get started with the research focus. This package includes all of the above elements AND two additional sessions of mathematics or literacy subject knowledge professional development
Schools can access ECC Lesson Study from Edge Hill University.
