Participants will learn the process of lesson plan inquiry. Participants will participate in an inquiry cycle looking closely at lesson plans and student work. Through this type of investigating using protocols and peer discussions teachers will establish goals, analyze student work, and evaluate student progress. Follow up sessions will allow for implementation and coaching of strategies and effective teaching practices that can allow for growth in student and teacher learning. Taking a closer look at what students know and how to analyze that is a step in the process of creating meaning and purpose for lesson planning.
