Chicago Lesson Study Summer Institute

This week was really well organized. The days went really fast and the time to work in groups allowed for really deep conversations. It was amazing to see the growth in just one week.

Lesson Study Alliance, the Chicago Lesson Study Group, and the Chicago Teachers Union invite you to attend the 5th annual Chicago Lesson Study Summer Institute.

The Chicago Lesson Study Summer Institute is a unique opportunity for teachers to learn about lesson study and plan their own research lesson away from the pressures of daily teaching, and with guidance and feedback from experienced teachers and experts. This year, for the first time, there will be a Level II Institute for experienced teams as well as two Level I institutes for novice teams.

Grant opportunity: A grant through the CPS Office of Teaching and Learning is available to support a limited number of Chicago Public School teachers. For more information, please contact at the Chicago Teachers Union.
