While the topics vary, many of these case studies can be used to enhance your Abnormal Psychology unit. A round-robin reading day or gallery walk could be very engaging and a very fun way for students to examine these case studies.
Other case studies on the site highlight ESP, neuroscience, stereotype threat, the Mozart Effect, and the scientific method. Most case studies appear to be written by college faculty, with some high school teachers participating.
I have used some of these case studies in class and found them to be a great way to get kids to read beyond the text, and I've read some just to enhance my general knowledge about psychology's topics.
Do you use case studies in class? If not, this could be a great way to start! If so, how do you use them?
