Lesson Study 101
The Lesson Study process focuses on one lesson, moving through an iterative cycle of improvement. A lesson in written, field tested, reworked, field tested a second time, then reworked once more. The end result is a high quality lesson that is both kid-tested and teacher-approved.
Lesson Study is not a process for California Math & Science Grant cohort members only. Every professional learning community and data team can use the Lesson Study cycle to provide definitive evidence for effective instructional components.
Please contact Frances Whitney, PVUSD Math Coordinator, if you are interested in learning more about the Lesson Study Process.

Hi! My name is Denise Henry and I am thrilled to be a part of CaMSP!. I've worked in a wide variety of academic settings - from residential treatment centers to academic units at the university level - for over 15 years. In this time, I've developed the perspective that all students will experience academic success given the appropriate supports. I look forward to being a part of the grant project and supporting teachers as they develop innovative mathematics instruction for their students.
Hello! I have been teaching math at PVUSD for 13 years. During this time I have been a mentor teacher, department chair, and a participant in the Math and Fiction Book Club. As math coach, I am pleased to be involved with all the teachers and staff of CaMSP!
