The case method is a teaching method based on real-life events that have happened or are happening. This method is based on constructivist theory and geared toward the target: education as preparation for solving life situations. Learning through solving situations helps students actively and strategically receive knowledge, flexibly apply knowledge and skills, and develop problem-solving abilities. By observing, interviewing, and experimenting, the article has developed a process of organizing case teaching and applied it in teaching National Defense and Security Education at Thai Nguyen High School, Vietnam. Initial results show that the percentage of students interested in the lesson is high (85%). That shows that the effectiveness of the method is feasible and creates a basis for continuing to use this teaching method in practice.
