Overview

With the increasing diversity in today’s schools, A Casebook for Exploring Diversity is an excellent supplemental text for pre-service teachers in multicultural, inclusive, or urban education courses, as well as for in-service teachers and participants in professional development workshops. Its 37 real-life case studies represent scenarios that could occur in any school–urban, suburban, or rural–and at any grade level. They address the topics of gender, ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, religion, special needs, sexual orientation, language, and ageism. Each case study, followed by questions and activities, will help you develop important social and cross-cultural skills, better understand your students, and broaden your understanding of diversity issues in a classroom setting.
