Volume Title



This report will review some of the current and past literature on case-based learning and instruction, while also providing the reader with a background on the development of this particular learning strategy with implications for future research. The first two chapters will review case-based learning/instruction by examining its background and history, current uses, and benefits associated with its current uses in educational settings, as well as how these benefits may apply to younger learners. In chapter three, I have discussed some of the more well established discussion-based methods in K-12 education, specifically those most similar to case-based learning. This section is followed by suggestions for implementing case-based learning and instruction with younger learners. The report concludes with limitations associated with case-based learning and its implementation with younger learners.
