The League of Women Voters of New Canaan and the New Canaan Museum & Historical Society will sponsor a community discussion employing the Harvard Case Method, led by New Canaan High School teachers, Amy Rothschild, Paul Phillips, and Kristine Goldhawk.

The topic, “Martin Luther King and the Struggle for Black Voting Rights,” is a timely reminder of how the long and difficult road to voting equality played out during the 1960s, a time many of us remember. The Harvard Case Method Program brings case method teaching to high schools to deepen students’ understanding of American democracy.

Based on the highly successful experience of Harvard Business School and others that use case-based teaching, Harvard’s program is currently being used by New Canaan High School teachers across a range of subjects in history and civics. Cases are painstakingly written by Harvard to show students how to think objectively and critically, and thereby reverse the decline in civics education and civic engagement in the United States.

This event will occur at the museum on Wednesday, October 6th from 7:00-8:30pm. The doors will open at 6:30. We welcome you to join us for this important discussion.
