Lesson Study

lesson plans

Lesson Study is a method of developing lesson plans that involves collaboration and creativity. It is an iterative process in which teachers brainstorm, discuss and implement lesson ideas, try them out on a class, and then come back together to revise and rethink the lesson. What results is a high-quality lesson plan that has been tested and tried multiple times.

Instructor College has supported a local Lesson Study group. View and download the lesson plans and learn more about Lesson Study.

Instructor College Cafe Files

instructor college cafe files

The  Cafe was an initative led by the UM Instructor College steering committee in 2011 - 2013. The project as originally imagined would give library instructors a place to share resources and build a community of practice around the development and use of these materials.  The Cafe webpages were suspended in December 2013, although the spirit of the cafe continues in the many ways we continue to share resources.  The contributed files are now available in this public Google Drive folder.  For more information, contact
