- Before you Read 2.  Pair Do you or did you use to belong to any social groups at your school? What is/was it like? What the school life would/would have been if you didn’t/hadn’t done?
- Preview: What is Case Study?
Case studies are in-depth investigations of a single person, group, event or community. Typically, data are gathered from a variety of sources and by using several different methods (e.g. observations & interviews). The research may also continue for an extended period of time, so processes and developments can be studied as they happen. It often involves simply observing what happens to, or reconstructing ‘the case history’ of a single participant or group of individuals (such as a school class or a specific social group), especially in formal research venues, such as journals and professional conferences, rather than popular works, ranging from psychology, anthropology, sociology, and political science to education, clinical science, social work, and administrative science.

<=Objective: Elaborate the conversation by asking/answering question.
Tips: How you extend a conversation is simple. Keep focus on other person’s topics of interest. Don’t contradict or argue. Just swim/float with the conversation. But expand on what is being shared. Just repeating what was said earlier by the other person in a different manner could help. Also, sharing your own experiences may be helpful.
