Civics

and

History Studies

The Harvard Case Method Institute, which began at the Harvard Business School, trains high school teachers of history, social studies, and civics at no cost, using actual cases from our government’s inception to the present day. Professor David Moss of the Harvard Business School writes about our country’s many conflicts and the outcomes, both positive and negative. The cases provide historical context, and student discussions are an integral part of this transformative method of teaching civics. The LWVLC has nominated three teachers in Lane County who have completed the program and will teach cases this academic year. For more information about the Case Method Institute, please visit their website:
