A Casebook for Exploring Diversityfocuses 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 theiruse.
