Making distinctions – critical for the learning of the 'existence' of negative numbers? Exploring how 'instructional products' from a theory informed Lesson study can be shared and enhance student learning

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we present how experiences gained from a theory informed Lesson study in regards to a specific learning goal can be shared and used by other teachers in new contexts. A group of teachers worked together in a cyclic, iterative process of planning, evaluating and revising teaching. The aim was to provide possibilities for grade 2 and 3 students to become familiar with negative numbers, thus to extend the number range from N to Z. Based on theoretical tenets about learning and empirical findings in the study the teacher group draw the conclusion that the pupils needed to be able to differentiate some aspects of negative numbers. The conjecture was put to the test in a follow-up study with five new teachers and eight classes. One lesson was taught based on the empirical finding in the Lesson study. When learning gains from pre- to post-test in these classes were compared to those in the Lesson study, similarities were found. It is suggested that accumulate evidence about ‘what must be learned’ across different classroom settings can be gained through a theory informed and goal oriented Lesson study.
