Public Research Lesson: Mathematics Social Justice

This exciting opportunity is the culmination of a lesson study cycle.

Engaging in public research lessons is a powerful practice for spreading instructional approaches. This practice, while a growing tradition in parts of the US, is an established practice in Japan.

In this Healdsburg Unified Public Lesson, participants will: 

  • Observe a research lesson, in a live classroom, focusing on Mathematics Social Justice, "People Represented in Our World and Community” 
  • Be inspired by students’ responses and increased engagement as you watch a lesson specifically designed for focal students.
  • Learn from the reflections of teachers and the panel of commentators.
  • See how lesson study deeply impact teachers' attention to equity and rigorous mathematics.
  • Connect with California Mathematics Project: North Coast (CMP:NC) and hear about the support and resources available to Sonoma County Educators and community.
