Bridging multiple worlds: case studies of diverse educational communities
Bridging Multiple Worlds connects theory and practice, offering authentic, "real world" case studies involving teachers and students of diverse backgrounds in a variety of dynamic classroom settings.
This case study text uses a "Decision Making Scaffold" and specific discussion questions for each case to help students reflect on the cases in greater depth and meaning. Unlike most texts that include vignettes or cases, this text provides direction for class discussions. Instructors will find the authentic situations stimulating and engaging. Furthermore, pertinent research and background information precede each case. In addition, the scaffold and discussion questions facilitate planning and implementing each class session. The emphasis on long-term, comprehesive solutions to problems that link the school, home, and community will help students appreciate and understand the complexity of issues involved in the cases.
