Anatomy of a National Team Case Competition: Reflections of the Winning Team.
Haysbert, JoAnn W.
Hampton University (Virginia) developed a team for the Commonwealth Center Invitational Team Case Competition composed of four junior level students majoring in math education, history education, elementary education, and special education. One student was a white female, two were African American females, and one was an African American male, and all ranged in age from 20 to 22. The team developed a proposal which successfully resulted in its selection for the competition. The proposal described the university, the use of cases in the teacher education program, and why the team would be a good one to include. To train for the competition, the team became acquainted with case-based teaching and analyzed cases, with the faculty sponsor assuming the role of a provocateur and a judge. The team and faculty sponsor also collected information about the writings, professional affiliations, and philosophical positions on education of the individuals who would be serving as judges and provocateurs in the competition. Preparation for the competition is described from the perspective of one of the team members. The celebrity status enjoyed by the team after it won the competition is highlighted. A list of skills and knowledge needed by students to achieve success in such events is provided. (JDD)
