Study - Matt Jason
Democratic Values: Liberty, Justice, Equality, & The Common Good
As part of the planning and implementation process, Matt consulted
with a social studies educator in the MSU College of Education,
and a curator at the MSU Museum about the field study activities
outlined in the case. As a culminating activity, students constructed
an online museum where they linked Core Democratic Values to their
family and community histories. Unlike the other cases, Matt did
the videotaping and much of the photography you will find here.

their teaching, first after the lessons were concluded, and again
after viewing complete videotaped recordings of lessons and interviews.
