School-based Curriculum Development in the Primary Schools-Collaborative Lesson Planning
Through in-depth discussions and constant reflections on students’ learning difficulties in the collaborative lesson planning meetings, teachers are inspired to design effective and pragmatic strategies to enhance teaching and learning effectiveness.
The significance of collaborative lesson planning, lesson observation and analysis: Through ‘focused’ collaborative lesson planning, teachers can be prompted to effectively collect learning evidence on which critical inquiry and collective reflections can be made to help them construct pedagogical content knowledge.
With a free learning atmosphere and an open space for discussions and learning, teachers can share and examine their own practices to generate practical wisdom. Collaborative lesson planning provides a refreshing and rejuvenating platform to give teachers the opportunity to share their substantial and impressive teaching and learning experiences, giving them the courage and the ability to face and manage ever-evolving challenges more flexibly.
