This resource offers a collection of case studies for use in undergraduate science classrooms. It provides a sample of the recent attempts to introduce the method into the science classroom and a glimpse of its potential as seen through the eyes of some of its most ardent advocates. Designed to humanize science and to illustrate scientific methodology and values, the cases also develop students' skills in group learning, speaking, and critical thinking. The cases are organized into topics that present issues in chemistry, ecology, and physics and engineering as well as medicine and health, molecular biology, and teaching scenarios. The site also references videotapes, articles, books, bibliographies, and case study literature.
