Explain how the strategies you’ve suggested are engaging to diverse learners. The strategies I have suggested will require both individual, small group, and whole group learning. The methods the class will use help promote teaching and learning for understanding (Tomlinson & Britt, 2012). Students are acquiring important knowledge and skills and then transfer what they have learned by creating his or her end to the story. Students will demonstrate efficiency from what they have learned about the Civil War. Finally, as students work from individual, small group and whole group presentations, the Differentiation Instruction will allow students to demonstrate leadership skills, teachers will demonstrate a flexible classroom, with an intent to provide interest based learning (Tomlinson & Britt, 2012) References Puckett, K (2013).
