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.

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.
