This chapter focuses on approaches to teaching with case studies. It illustrates four key steps in case-based teaching in the international relations classroom: (1) finding the right cases, (2) the preparation needed before the classroom session, (3) the class session itself, and (4) what to do after the class session. It discusses the advantage of good case-based teaching and its value in promoting critical thinking. Although preparation may be time-consuming, instructors may also learn from the different meanings that students glean from the cases discussed.
