Chapter 22: “Building and Sustaining Professional Collaborations: Using Japanese Lesson Study to Improve the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics.” Joan Moss and Diane Tepylo (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto) and Richard Messina and Elizabeth Morley (Institute of Child Study Laboratory School, Toronto) chronicle the evolution of a professional learning community engaged in lesson study, the challenges it faced, and the innovations the group forged that sustained it over six years. The chapter then describes the design process of a single, representative grade 2 lesson developed by this learning community, and it concludes with reflections on factors that contributed to the sustainability of the lesson study groups.
