9780131708068: Casebook for Exploring Diversity, A (3rd Edition)

With its concrete, focused cases, the third edition of this casebook again focuses on the wealth of multicultural and diversity issues faced by today's teachers. Its authentic cases offer opportunities for analysis on several levels and are sufficiently complex so as to invite multiple interpretations. They present examples of everyday situations involving gender, ethnicity, race, religion, language, affectional orientation, socioeconomic status, parents, and community...even technology. The cases involve classroom issues that are relevant to all grade levels and all content areas, allowing instructors significant flexibility in their use.

From the Back Cover:

With the increasing diversity in today’s schools, A Casebook for Exploring Diversity is an excellent supplemental text for preservice teachers in multicultural, inclusive, or urban education courses, as well as for inservice 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 your interpersonal skills, better understand your students, and broaden your multicultural horizons in a classroom setting.

 

Features of the Third Edition:

 

  • NEW! Glossary of selected terms relating to diversity, for reference while reading and engaging in discussion.
  • NEW! Chapter 10 addresses ageism with cases focusing on age-related issues in the classroom.
  • NEW! Bibliography of multicultural children’s literature for P-12 students, for use in completing the Questions for Reflection and Activities for Extending Thinking.
  • NEW! Sample rubrics for assessing students’ responses to cases in the text, for self-assessment, peer-assessment, or instructor-assessment.
  • Questions for Reflection following each case invite students to collect further data, consider alternative perspectives, share their thoughts, and formulate individual or group responses.
  • Activities for Extending Thinking after each case encourage readers to relate their insights to other course texts, to their field experience, to the lesson and unit planning process, and to local, state, and national standards in teacher education.
  • Design Your Own Case allows readers to become actively involved in case design by writing their own case studies.
  • Resources for further study are provided in the form of Readings for Extending Thinking and Internet Sites for Extending Thinking in each chapter.
