Case Studies in Teacher Education: A Series for Working with Students at Risk.
Ryan, Charles W., Ed.; And Others
The purpose of this manual is to aid in bridging the gap between theory and practice in teacher education, leading both the instructor and the teacher education student toward a more functional approach to drug education as infused in the traditional public school curriculum. The monograph presents 13 case studies exposing students to a new orientation as it relates to a drug education curriculum. The case study method promotes a structured stimulus allowing unstructured responses, and encourages students to react as they would if confronted with the same situation. The cases are designed to stimulate an analysis of one's attitudes and practices as they relate to drug education and to encourage greater use of drug-related content in public elementary and secondary schools. The majority of these cases were drawn from real situations encountered by teachers in the field. Others were written specifically to spotlight critical aspects of drug education in the classroom. Each case includes: (1) case setting; (2) case theme; (3) statement of case problem; (4) student challenge questions; (5) case issues; (6) case questions; (7) case references; and (8) suggested teacher education courses. (Thirty additional readings on portfolios are suggested.) (LL)
