Eurydice-Maria Kanellopoulou, Maria Darra

Abstract


The main purpose of the present study is to investigate the contribution of the lesson study to the formation of a collaborative framework for the operation of the school unit. Qualitative research was conducted from February 12 to April 1, 2016, in the second grade secondary school of Attica, with a total of 31 students and four teachers. The results of the survey show that the lesson study cultivates and strengthens the collaborative climate among the participating teachers, which has positive effects not only on their own but also on their students. In particular, research has highlighted the ways in which the lesson study builds co-operation among teachers, as well as the benefits of this collaboration for participating teachers and pupils. Also, the importance of collaboration and the development of collaborative culture, in the context of a fruitful and constructive dialogue, have emerged as the strengths of the lesson study.
