This book advocates the use of case methods to promote democratic
teaching and learning. Part I speaks directly to teacher educators.
The chapters in this part suggest how and why they might use case
methods at pre- and in-service levels. Part II presents a set of
cases and teaching notes designed to stimulate active consideration
of democratic teaching and learning in elementary and secondary
schools throughout the United States. These cases can be used with
both prospective and practicing teachers. Case methods in
education--like those used to prepare practitioners in other
professions such as medicine, law, and business--require learners
to attend to detail and to exercise judgment as they identify and
solve problems. Although each has its own unique variations,
case-method approaches in all fields promote careful examination of
professional practice. The cases in this book will help teacher
educators think anew about many issues related to teaching and
learning with cases.
