By introduction, my name is Rose Carbone and I teach seniors who are enrolled in AP Government and Politics and American Government courses at Seminole Ridge Community High School in Westlake, Florida.
I would like to thank the LWV of Palm Beach County and Harvard Business School for providing the opportunity to attend the Case Method Project Community Workshop at Harvard Business School on August 18-20, 2019. The workshop was comprised of teachers from 60 schools across the country. Under the tutelage of Professor David Moss, we were instructed on the Case Study Method which is an innovating and engaging approach to teaching History, Civics and Government in high schools. The ultimate goals of the case study method are to help students retain the course content, and increase civic engagement.
In terms of professional development, this memorable workshop was the highlight of my teaching career. I have started the implementation of the first case study in my classes and I look forward to working with the LWV to present a public case discussion to the community.
