How I Choose and Use Good Cases
To minimize the assumptions that students bring to a case, assign them cases that occurred before they were born.
Have students research the case in specific ways to determine "what happened."
To stimulate learning transfer across contexts, ask students to find a contemporary case that has much in common with the old one, and compare / contrast the two cases.
