Case Studies-Why and How


by Harry S. Broudy — 1990

Harry Broudy argues that the persistent criticism of teachers and of teacher education programs is due in part to the absence of a "consensus of the learned" about how teachers should be educated.

Such case study, in Broudy's view, would develop prospective teachers' abilities to bring educational theory and research to bear in interpreting perennial problems and exploring alternative solutions to them.
