The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science has worked with dozens of scientists over the years to bring forth a range of wonderful teaching resources. The case study method is well-known in the field, and the offerings on the main website cover biology, ecology, zoology, and other disciplines. This particular case study was authored by Kyla Flanagan of the University of Calgary and Jalene M. LaMontagne of DePaul University, and it looks at how scientists and others might work to preserve the habitat of the caribou in northern Alberta. On the site, visitors can read an abstract of the case study, peruse its objectives, and then dive right in. Users will find a set of Teaching Notes, Supplemental Materials, and comments from those who have utilized the materials. It's a rather useful teaching tool, especially for those in the biological sciences.
