Case Study Assignment – due at end of Unit 2 (3 pages total)
1. Read this article found at the Kaplan UAH library:
Sunde-Peterson, J. (2001). “Gifted and at risk: Four longitudinal case
studies of post-high-school development.” Roeper Review, 24(1). The
Roeper School.
You can find a copy of this article here.
Think about this quote from the article as you prepare your case:
In addition, the case study format helps to retain the focus on
individuals, as contrasted with aggregates. Such a focus is
appropriate for educators, for whom “questions about meaning and
perspective are central and ongoing” (Donmoyer, 1990, p. 197). The
narrative excerpts and low-inference descriptions leave room for
further interpretation. Each “story” can edify high school educators
and counselors, gifted-education teachers, university admissions
officers, mental health counselors, and parents as they and other
important players contemplate ways to support high ability students
during times of personal turmoil, uncertainty, and uneven or
interrupted development (p.35).
2. Construct a hypothetical case that focuses on one of your 10th
-12th grade (hypothetical) students at risk for dropping out of
school. Limit the focus of your case study to social factors only. (1

3. Which education/psychology theory would best explain the cause of
student failure? Use Chapter 2 in your text book to help guide your
response. (1 page)
4. What steps might you take, as the teacher, towards remediation and
retention? Under what child development theory in Chapter 2 of your
text would this plan of action fall? (1 page)
Your case study assignment will be due at the end of Unit 2.
