The Illinois Civics Hub is partnering with the The Case Method Institute for Education and Democracy at Harvard College and Harvard Business School to bring this PD opportunity to Illinois high school civics and history teacher to advance U.S. history, government, and civics instruction in high schools while deepening students’ interest in, and engagement with, democracy in America. This Institute offers training in the case method, the core pedagogical approach at many business and other professional schools, as well as access to the complete “History of American Democracy” curriculum originally developed for students at Harvard College and Harvard Business School. The opportunity includes: • An afternoon of Zoom-based training with Professor David Moss of Harvard Business School on Saturday, May 21, including an interactive case discussion. • Complete access to over 20 cases exploring key decision-points in the history of American democracy ranging from the Constitutional Convention to the Civil Rights Movement. • An asynchronous virtual training program, completed before the Zoom-based session with Professor Moss, where participants will become familiar with case method teaching. • Ongoing support and continued collaboration with Institute staff, prioritizing a two-way exchange of ideas around best practices for teaching by the case method in high schools. Details to register to access the Case Method Materials, virtual training program, and Zoom Link will be shared after registration.
