Teaching Diverse Students: Preparing with Cases. Fastback 429.
Allain, Violet Anselmini; Pettus, Alvin M.
The use of short cases (or case scenarios) and a case method of instruction can help teachers and other educators in both preservice and inservice contexts learn ways of implementing curriculum and providing effective instruction for diverse students. This "Fastback" from the Phi Delta Kappa Educational Foundation illustrates such use of the case method. The booklet's contents are: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Case Scenarios and Case Methods" (using the case method, case scenarios for diversity preparation); (3) "Strategies for Using Case Scenarios" (providing appropriate direction, sample directions for scenario analysis, sample case scenario and responses, comparing responses to short and long versions); (4) "Case Scenarios for Practice" (language and nationality, gender and content construction, curriculum and content integrity, sexual orientation and recognition, class or socioeconomic conditions); and (5) "Conclusion." (Contains 29 references.) (EV)
