Without knowing the purpose, goals, and objectives of the
course, this response may be off-the-wall. If the class is
a foundational course in education, a couple of book
possibilities:

Banks & Banks, Multicultural Education: Issues and
Perspectives. Allyn and Bacon.
Issues and Concepts
Social Class and Religion
Gender
Ethnicity and Language
Exceptionality
School Reform

Brislin, Understanding Culture's Influence on Behavior.
Harcourt Brace College Publishers.
Sample chapter headings
Conceptualizing culture and its impact
Socialization
Intergroup relations: Cultures in contact
Culture and gender

You could structure a field experience in which each of your
students would need to tutor a student whose background and
experience is different from their own. Have them generate a
case study of that student. Of course, periodically debrief
and process throughout the term. We do this experience (for
different reasons) and it's real interesting to see the
insights our students gain. Just a quick response. Good luck.

By the way, congratulations on completing your doctorate.
