Curriculum Coherence, Problem-Solving and Lesson Design: Learning from the Japanese approach
Dr. Akihiko Takahashi is the one of the leading authorities of Japanese lesson study both within Japan and globally. He returns to the UK to provide insight about how the Japanese Lesson Study can help develop teaching practice and curricular coherence. He has published over 45 journal articles and book chapters and given over 50 presentations and keynotes at conferences and workshops around the world.
Dr Takahashi will guide the participants to examine the learning progression of critical topics using a Japanese textbook, including the cross year group progressions and progression in a particular unit. He will examine how carefully tasks are selected to support students to develop understanding of concepts and procedures through problem solving. The workshop will include exploring how to design lessons, including anticipating student responses and the role of board writing. For the final process of designing a lesson, a mock-up lesson will be discussed at the end of the day.
