Start with a simple case study. Take an important concept for the day and either search online for existing case studies or write a simple one that requires students to apply the concept. Remember to add some complexity and subtlety to the situation. Also consider using an existing video (there are millions of them readily available on YouTube) as the context for the case. In groups, ask students to use the case to explain a situation (i.e., how would social conflict theory explain this?), solve a problem, or answer “what if” questions (“what if the situation were different…”). Bring the class together to have each group describe their answer or solution.
Remember that this is just an example of how to get started
with this Teaching Method.
