Preparing Today's Students for Tomorrow's Social Conflicts: A Systems Approach.
Dynneson, Thomas L.
The case study analysis system was designed to increase student analytical skills while focusing on social conflict situations. The analysis system is a systematic means of identifying, classifying, and clarifying factors found in social conflict situations. Students are also expected to gain insights into forces that change social structures. Through case study students become aware of unfamiliar as well as creative solutions to threatening and dangerous conflict predicaments. Students who complete case study conflict analyses should be more sensitive to alternative conflict solutions, and perhaps more skillful at handling social conflict dilemmas. Suggestions are given to teachers for applying the system in the classroom as illustrated in an example. Suggestions are also provided for developing case study materials. (Author/JH)
