General Plan for Teaching the Case Study

1. Introduction

During this stage need to get the students interested in the case study topic ( without actually making reference to it )

Find any related news stories to key elements of the case study.

Get students to work in pairs on one of these news stories and give presentation to peers followed by discussion. ( limit to 5 topics class size 16)

( ideally get students approach the topic as a Question and Answer approach similar to the extended question )

Get students to upload research findings from presentations on dedicated web site for IB course. Students can use the comments section to further explore the topics by asking question or proving more details.
