The paper looks at professional knowledge cultures as related to teacher education, experiences of global exchange, and educational purpose(s), with emphasis on pedagogical practice as related to ‘lesson planning’—an almost assumed part of U. S. school cultures. In this case, some basic concepts associated with this practice are portrayed in a cross-cultural exchange experience of French teacher interns in U. S. schools, U. S. mentor teachers, and U. S. teacher educators. Data collection and analysis consist of 1) archival material in the form of lesson plans, other planning-related and instructional support materials, and evaluation rubrics, 2) notes and interviews with teacher educators regarding their pedagogical interventions, and 3) notes from debriefing sessions with those involved in these cross-cultural initiatives.
