Partner teachers present the latest materials and strategies in our work to develop the case teaching method at the high school level and the Four Worlds of History for middle school.
Teacher Leaders are the essential ingredient
Instruction based on student-driven analysis is dependent on teacher initiative.
With the Four Worlds of History (4WH), partner teachers witnessed immediate positive impact on student performance-- for all students.
While students gain quickly, such success did not come overnight. This USC outreach project started in 1981 when Professor Steven Lamy came to the USC School of International Relations. After 30 years, our materials and strategies have come together as a new approach to teaching social science.
