Meadowbank School. Case Studies in Education.
Schofield, Roy, Ed.
This book, one of the eight publications prepared by the Science Teacher Education Project, describes problems and events occurring in a school, each written in the form of a case study. Most of the case studies in this book have been selected from trial materials and suitably modified in light of the experience gained. All have been adopted to fit the context of an imaginary comprehensive school called Meadowbank. The case studies range widely, embracing a host of pedagogical issues. Many formats are used to provide variety: sometimes in-tray letters, sometimes transcripts of conversations, sometimes descriptive narratives. A number of questions are included at the end of each case study. It is suggested that students attempt to answer these questions on an individual bases followed by group discussions. References are cited as well as bibliographies on the use of case studies. A description of the imaginary school, its staff, communication within the school and a description of the science department's curriculum and examinations precedes the various case studies.
