Lesson Study is a credible teacher development approach which has its origins from Japan and is currently being implemented globally. Due to the unique educational needs of each country, including South Africa, there are numerous variations of Lesson Study. Through Lesson Study, a team of teachers work collaboratively to identify a problematic topic/concept, plan the lesson, observe the lesson while one teacher teaches, and then engage in reflective exercise to improve the lesson.
Creativity has been described as the tendency to generate or recognise ideas, alternatives, and possibilities that may be useful for solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining people. Human civilization has been built, and rebuilt, time and time again, through the creativity of individuals. Almost every aspect of modern life, from consumer products to systems of governance, is the result of human creativity.
