This casebook features 15 cases, each one documenting a particular classroom event or series of related events, and most ending with a dilemma that the teacher must resolve. A range of ideas can be suggested and critically evaluated and a plan of action can be developed with fallback positions available. The case discussions give students the opportunity to develop a consistent problem-solving method that they can later apply to various classroom situations. The teacher's edition contains an introductory essay on case study teaching that includes advice about such topics as room arrangement, starting and ending the discussion, using the chalkboard, questioning/listening/responding and managing time. Detailed teaching notes are provided for each case which include blocks of discussion, suggested question outlines, suggested board headings and suggested assignment questions.
