Challenges to the Implementation of Lesson Study in the Amazon

Mauro Marinho da Silva, Nilton Hitotuzi


The Japanese methodology, known in the West as Lesson Study, has been exploited in teacher education programs in various parts of the world, including the Brazilian Amazon where two pioneering studies have been carried out recently. This paper is a reflection on potential challenges to the implementation of this methodology in the Amazon. An inference that is drawn from it is that the current circumstances of the teaching culture and other cultural characteristics obtaining in this region only admit the implementation of a vague version of the Japanese Lesson Study.
