Mr. Stinson's Vietnam: Moral Ambiguity in the History Classroom. Teaching Cases in Cross-Cultural Education, No. 11.
Wineburg, Samuel S.; Kleinfeld, Judith, Ed.
This document proposes a case study approach to U.S. history instruction. The method which the document suggests arises from an actual class discussion of the My Lai massacre that occurred during the Vietnam War. A sample class discussion concerns the setting of standards to guide national and international affairs and the particular standards that the United States applied in fighting the War in Southeast Asia. The document's main section entitled "Immediate and Long-Term Teaching Options" presents three approaches to such a case study approach: (1) "Choices in the Heat of Discussion"; (2) "Possibilities for Follow Up"; and (3) "Additional Questions and Issues."
