Working together: Insights from a special education unit in Japan
MetadataShow full item record
The rapid international expansion of literature on Japanese lesson study in regular education does not apply to special education. Education in English-speaking countries values interpersonal relationships of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) but needs more research. The professional experience of Japanese special educators provides a natural laboratory to observe interpersonal relationships practice in everyday classroom activities. Short stories from a special education unit in a Japanese elementary school provide snapshots of three teachers' collaborative lesson study with colleagues and their approach to teaching groups of children including those with a dual diagnosis of ASD and intellectual disability.
