I need funding to attend an 11 day Lesson Study immersion program in Japan to examine authentic Japanese Lesson Study and mathematics classrooms. I am asking for funding for tuition and airfare.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Have you ever meet some incredible children and you can't believe that they are only 6 and 7? I think about this every day. My diverse first grade community varies in ethnicity, home language, socioeconomic status and learning style, and we all come together in school to learn a ton!
They love to be challenged with math and are always eager to share their problem solving with their friends.
We work hard together to create a safe space for mathematicians to take risks, make mistakes, and learn from each other.
I have been selected for the 2018 Project IMPULS Lesson Study Immersion Program at Tokyo Gakugei University in Japan. The Lesson Study immersion program is designed to give mathematics education researchers and practitioners from outside Japan an opportunity to examine authentic Japanese Lesson Study and mathematics classrooms. The major purpose of this program is to examine the strengths and weaknesses of Japanese Lesson Study and to collaborate on how to improve mathematics teacher professional development programs.
With my team, we will observe, examine, and participate in a deeper dive into math instruction that will best support the lifelong learning our for students.
My students are already experiencing the Japan math curriculum in our classroom and they love it! I will be able to apply to all of my learning about teaching math to my students all the way back across the Pacific Ocean.
