William Hare & John P. Portelli

The open discussion which such cases invite implies a conception of philosophy of education and an approach to education for teachers and administrators in which the mastery of rule and routine gives way to cases as problems where familiar generalizations about taching and administration prove inadequate. These case studies will provide a useful resource in any education course in which issues and dilemmas related to contemporary teaching and administrative practice are examined.

Some Reviews of What to do? Case Studies for Educators

This book is a valuable resource for prospective and practicing educators and for anyone interested in education.  It helps generate valuable dialogue about relevant contemporary issues.  The book helps promote the value of using “discussion case studies’.

In What To Do, Hare and Portelli present a vision of educational philosophy which is grounded in the concrete dilemmas that teachers face day to day. They offer a series of open-ended case studies which pose difficult real life questions in very accessible language. They have produced a book which will help teachers, teacher educators, and others problematize teaching for both preservice and inservice teachers, helping to place in their hands some
recognizable yet slippery fish.
Dr. Mike Corbett, School of Education, Acadia University
