In this research, it is aimed at examining the opinions of the Social Studies teacher candidates about the Lesson Study Model carried out in the Teaching Practice course. The research was designed as a case study. The participant group of the research consists of three pre-service teachers selected by the criterion sampling method: the social studies teacher of the practice school, the students of the practice class, and the researcher. The data obtained was analyzed using the content analysis method. This model applied in the research was found to be very beneficial for teacher professional development, intra-group communication and collaboration, and students' learning and development. The negative reactions from the students to the seriousness of the research lesson and the thought that the lesson plan prepared in collaboration with the team could not be well reflected in the lesson by the teacher were considered disadvantages regarding the model in the research. At the end of the research, it was seen that the Lesson Study Model is applicable in education. In the light of the findings, it is recommended that the model be applied and disseminated both in other fields and in the field of social studies education in Turkey.
