`This book is a must for any social justice/equity pedagogy course. I have used the first edition for the past four years and am so pleased to have an update. Using an equity framework, my students develop a lens for detecting inequity as it occurs in everyday classrooms, become adept at looking at the situation from multiple perspectives, and develop actionable plans to negotiate obstacles to equity in the classroom, the school, and in the community. Such a valuable resource!' -Jacquelynn A. Malloy, Department of Teaching and Learning, Clemson University `This case studies book and its pedagogical strategy was a game changer for all of my graduate and undergraduate courses. I can't imagine teaching without it now! Gorski and Pothini's second edition updates and extends what was already an essential instructional strategy for teacher education courses and professional development. The case study pedagogy provides the necessary theory to practice critical reflection and application that moves educators from simplistic gut reactions to daily injustices and microaggressions that exacerbate inequities to grappling with complex questions and a range of perspectives and outcomes. By engaging with real cases through a systematic, intentional process of deep examination, discussion, and questioning, students are able to specifically see how privilege and oppression operate in schools and how they can respond. This realization coupled with a framework to process such dilemmas in schools, prepares our students to better advocate for their students and families. I have used the first edition since it was first published and have seen huge growth in my students' ability to recognize and address the sociocultural context of schools, their own assumptions and biases, and the role that educators play in their sphere of influence to mitigate inequities in their classroom and school.' -Kara Kavanagh, Assistant Professor in the Department of Early, Elementary, and Reading Education at James Madison University
