Case Studies in Teacher Education: A Series for Working with Students at Risk. Volume II.
Ryan, Charles W., Ed.; And Others
Seven case studies are presented as a catalyst for change in teacher education and teaching in the public school sector that will be drug education based and help youth develop a sense of values. 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. Each case includes a discussion of the case setting, theme, and problem; student challenge questions; case questions and issues; and case references. The case studies have the following titles and authors:"Parental Career Impact on Child Academic Orientation" (Jone' L. West); "Display of Disruptive Behavior of a Developmentally Delayed Handicapped Child" (Virginia L. Collins); "Cultural Pluralism" (Brian Panter); "Biracial Children in Single Parent Families" (Jane De Marchis); "Misplaced Mike: Classroom Strategies for Cultural Pluralism" (James Moreland); "Learning Difficulties of a Middle School Student" (Nancy E. Bright); and "Steroids and Success: A Quick Solution for Todd" (Amy J. Cox). (JDD)
