Dine & Discuss – Harvard Case Study: James Madison: Creating the Constitution

“How much power should the federal government have over states?”

Bryan High Teacher Terrence O’Donnell who was trained in 2020 in the Case Study Method through Harvard University, Boston, MA will lead a discussion as he does with his Bryan High students.

The Case Study Method by Harvard Business School requires individuals to walk in the shoes of decision-makers by considering all facts within contexts of time. This process ignites discussion and does not intend to focus on particular views, but to identify approaches within decision making itself. Harvard Business School is implementing cases in schools and communities because feedback from prior participants have cited greater motivation to become civically engaged. 

Be prepared to be an active participant in the case: to discuss facts, think critically, and learn more about American Democracy.  The event is designed to encourage those of all ages in our community from students to seniors – to recommit to our democratic process of healthy debate and constructive compromise.
