Case Studies and Methods in Teaching and Learning.
Fasko, Daniel, Jr.
Using case studies and the case method of instruction to improve teaching and learning have been reported in the education literature since the early 1900s. The popularity of these techniques and strategies increased in the 1950s. The impetus for using these strategies came from C. Christensen and A. Hanson, and Moore's "Teaching and the Case Method" (1987). Much of the literature relates to the use of these instructional strategies in higher and professional education. However, there appears to be a dearth of data on the usefulness of these techniques, especially in K-12 schools. The paper discusses implications for research and practice. (Contains 18 references.)
