Lesson Plans from Oakland Lesson Study

Our friends down at the Oakland Unified School District Teaching American History Grant have a terrific website, featuring scholarly talks and information about lesson study (including two videos – here and here – that I draw on constantly.)

They’ve also got a set of lesson plans posted, revised and vetted be real-life teachers and students through the lesson study process:
