Writing of Teaching Cases by Students: Integrating Practice and Administrative Theory.
Pavan, Barbara Nelson
This paper describes the writing of teaching cases by students to help them understand and use multiple theoretical frames for practical decision making. It describes a doctoral level course called "Theoretical Perspectives" and the doctoral program at Temple University's Department of Educational Leadership. Students are required to study the cases before class sessions and share their analyses and action plans during the class discussion. One of the students' term assignments is to write their own teaching case. A survey of students indicate that most viewed the case-study approach positively and reported that they learned to value the usefulness of theory in practical situations. (Contains 21 references.)
