Case Scenario: What Would You Do?Jennifer EberhardtMaster of Science in Education, Walden UniversityDr. Marshall-BradleyEDUC 6650: Enhancing Learning for Diverse PopulationsAugust 15th, 2021
As I was reading this week’s resources, I found many different connections and similarities between the case scenario that we read this week and the case studies we have read throughout the course. The similarities between the case scenario and our course text case studieshave strong beliefs’ on religion, gender, sex, gender identity and sexuality issues.In this week’s case scenario, Billy is a student at a school that is within a very religious community. The other students’ at Billy’s school do not want to work with him because he is different and was brought up in a family different to their own (Laureate Education, 2015g). The school Billy attends is very diverse in race, but regarding religious beliefs regarding gender and gender identity (Laureate Education, 2015g). Billy comes from a family of same-sex marriage, and to some people, that is unacceptable, which is why students do not want to work with Billy. Billy’s teacher, Mr. Adams, decided to assign groups instead of letting the students pick their group partners. He sensed there was some tension regarding who was going to work with Billy (Laureate Education, 2015g).One case in our course text that I thought related to this case scenario the most is case 9.4: Two Moms(Gorski & Pothini, 2015). The case, Two Moms, is about a teacher who has educated herself on same-sex parents and found books that she could have in the classroom for her student who comes from a household with two moms and the other students in the classroom (Gorski & Pothini, 2015). The moms of this student were very appreciative of how their child’s teacher was willing to educate herself but supply resources that will make their child feel more comfortable (Gorski & Pothini, 2015). The teacher, Mrs. Ribiero, had zero intentions of teaching
