Family and culture play an intricate role not only in methods of communicating, but also in shaping the way we think and interact with others. Today, education goes far beyond focusing on literacy and mathematics. Educators that acknowledge, incorporate, and celebrate the whole child can provide access to a world many may view as impossible. As educators we must use and find the best practices for reaching all students and families to provide emotional and technical support, compassion, and encouragement as we partner in facilitating learning at both home and school. Using the Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework, this workshop will tap into actionable steps educators can take to provide access for all students and their families.

    Audience: School Leaders

    Dates: 2/12/2022

    New
    The Case Method Institute for Education and Democracy has partnered with over 1,000 high school social studies teachers to bring the case method-a core pedagogical approach used in many business and law schools-along with a unique set of cases on the history of American democracy to high school classrooms nationwide. We have seen the case method and these case studies work remarkably well in high schools, with extensive benefits for students' academic performance and their civic engagement. Teachers call it "a game-changer,” "transformational,” and a "laboratory for citizenship.”

    Each case presents students with a historically rich narrative about real-world problems faced by decisionmakers and then poses the perennial question: "What would you do?” Students draw evidence from the case, discuss key issues with their peers, and reflect on questions posed by their teacher as they formulate arguments and decide what they would have done. After completing Professor Moss's case-based course at Harvard College, one student remarked, "If this class didn't make every student in it a better citizen, I don't know what class would.” You can find a full list of available cases here.

    The Institute is seeking teachers to join its efforts to strengthen social studies instruction in high schools while deepening students' understanding of, and engagement with, democracy in America. Everything-including the training, the complete set of twenty-two case studies, the accompanying teaching plans, and ongoing support-is provided free of charge.
