They become stronger instructional decision makers skilled at improving their own effectiveness. That translates into lasting benefits for teachers, students, and the entire school community. 

Through lesson study teachers develop a community for ongoing learning about mathematics and the craft of teaching. Through multiple cycles of lesson research they make real progress on long-term goals.
