INCREASING STUDENT ENGAGEMENT

Cypress Springs High School government and economics teacher Jared Selby was recently accepted into the Harvard Case Study Method Workshop, which will be held virtually in mid-August due to COVID-19.

Selby is the third CFISD teacher selected for the workshop, following Cypress Woods High School government teacher Tiffany Cross and Langham Creek High School government teacher Roxana Caulder, who both attended in 2019.

Selby will join teachers from across the country to study the approach of Harvard Business School professor David Moss. The workshop trains teachers in the use of case-based methodology to increase student engagement in the classroom. The workshop’s goal is to strengthen civics education and civic engagement in the United States.

“It’s an honor to be selected for the Harvard Case Study Project this summer,” Selby said. “I would like to thank the Houston chapter of the League of Women Voters and Harvard University for this opportunity. As an educator and lifelong learner, I am constantly seeking new ways to bring academic content alive for students. I want to have a profound and lasting impact on my students’ lives, and this perspective-based case study model is another path toward that goal.”
