Lesson Study for Learning Community (LSLC) represents an approach of lesson study that emerged in Japan in the 1990's which has been studied intensively by educators and researchers worldwide to develop professional learning communities for teachers to improve student learning. The model, which involves all subject teachers of the same grade level observing a lesson together, provides a possible solution to unified school reform policies regardless of subject department - a practice that is as yet, not commonly researched in Asian countries outside of Japan. The book's theoretical foundation reviews existing literature on LSLC in the Japanese contexts of educational theories and practices. The chapters discuss patterns of learning practices and challenges of conducting LSLC in various Asian countries like Japan, China, Korea, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Recommendations for research and practices involving LSLC are also proposed with a key focus on the impact of lesson study on school reform policies.
