Join the Wilton LWV Tuesday, September 22nd at 7:00 pm for a virtual opening meeting of
2020-2021. The meeting will begin with guest speaker Meredith Ramsey, Wilton High School Social Studies teacher. Ramsey will be discussing her recent participation in the Harvard Case Method Civics Workshop, an initiative formed to bring case method teaching to high schools to deepen students' understanding of American history and democracy.
Based on the highly successful experience of Harvard Business School and other graduate and professional programs that use case-based teaching, the method encompasses 22 cases based on historical documents that can be employed to strengthen high school education, and ensure a more exciting, relevant, and effective experience for students and teachers across a range of subjects. The case method can be especially successful at engaging students with topics in history and democracy, and it has shown to present a unique opportunity to help reverse the broad decline in civic education and civic engagement in the United States.
Since 2017, 50 League chapters from 22 states have sent over 80 teachers to the workshop. The Wilton LWV is participating in this initiative and committed to sponsor Ramsey for the 2020 workshop
