How do you like to use Case Studies in your classroom? If you don't use Case Studies, what has kept you from doing so?

What do you find the best resources to be for Case studies in 7th grade life science?
I have used a case study in my biology class to talk about mercury in fish, and I plan on using more. I wish I had more case study materials for my chemistry class. I really like the idea of students seeing how the content is applied outside of the lesson plan. Relating content to real life examples helps the student see real world applications, which is something I highly value. I especially like it when a problem is presented, and students work through the problems using systems thinking strategies (connection circles, feedback loops, behavior-over-time graphs). I would like to see more (or help create) curriculum materials implementing case studies with systems thinking.
I like to use Case Studies within my Biology classes. I teach Special Education and they truly tie the "real world" perspective to concepts within the classroom.
