Essential question #2 What tools might provide me insight into the learners in my classroom and how might I use this information?

There are always those students who spend a good part of their school day “not getting it”. This may be because of their learning style and looking for ways to teach core subjects in varying ways will reach those outliers as well as reinforce lessons taught in other ways. From doing the research on-line this week, as well as looking at other classmates resources at the 4th to 6th grade Wikispace, and other diffimooc Wikispace pages I was able to find many ideas to begin my research journey.
