The PALS' 1st National Convention on Lesson Study was featured in the International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE Newsletter). You can read the article below.
We encourage participants who are practitioners and researchers of lesson study to communicate and share their work in poster form. These works may include information about their lesson study works in schools or districts, research lessons, or research on lesson study.
In order for your poster to be considered for display during the two-day lesson study convention, you will need to submit an abstract describing what your poster is about and what you intend to communicate in the poster.
