This supplemental text provides a collection of three dozen real-world case studies in diversity that foster discussion-based, active learning pedagogy designed to guide students in problem analysis and problem solving.The cases explore a wide-range of diversity issues at the elementary (Pre-K-5) level, including culture, academic performance and expectations, safety and prosocial behaviors, social issues, special needs, and issues surrounding the family. The approach organizes discussion around defining problems, identifying alternatives, and proposing solutions to the issues presented in the case. The goal of the text is not to pose a single solution, but rather to learn how to analyze situations involving diverse individuals, evaluate a variety of solutions, and evaluate the consequences of those solutions.Features Thediverse authorsconsist of academics, practicing classroom teachers, student teachers, pre-service teachers, and students.
