BMHS Teacher, Katie Randall to present a Harvard Case Study at the Beloit Public Library

BELOIT—Katie Randall , Social Studies teacher at Beloit Memorial High School, will present a Harvard Case Study at 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the Riverside Room at Beloit Public Library.

The case study is James Madison, the “Federal Negative,” and the Making of the U.S. Constitution (1787). This case begins with the American Revolution and concludes at the Constitutional Convention. It describes the many challenges faced by the United States under the Articles of Confederation. Ms. Randall attended a workshop hosted by Professor David Moss of the Harvard Business School who has developed several historical interactive case studies for Social Studies teachers. The case studies are all copyrighted and, therefore, if one would like to attend, registration is necessary with the Beloit Public Library who is sponsoring the program along with the Beloit League of Women Voters. Once registered, the participants will receive a copy of the case study to bring to the event and also a survey to complete after participating. The league and the library sponsored two other programs using the Harvard Case Studies in 2020 and 2021.
