Background For Teachers:
Suburban communities are areas located outside of large cities. They are often characterized by individual homes located in neighborhoods that have yards. There is less traffic than in the city. Children ride buses, bikes, or they may walk to school, while parents often commute to work.
Urban communities are areas of high population density, with
people living close together (often apartments), and lots of traffic.
They usually boast easy access to movie theaters, restaurants, subways
or other forms of mass transportation. Libraries, museums, sports
arenas, zoos, and parks are often found there.

Cooperative learning opportunities for students allow them to be able to learn as they process information in small group situations. Every student is accountable for their part in the group’s final product. This process helps improve student motivation, social skills, and attitudes towards learning.
Collinston, E., (2000). A Survey of Elementary Students’ Learning Style Preferences and Academic Success. EBSCO. Retrieved January 20, 2007, from http://ebscohost.com
There are several different learning styles. Learning styles include the ways that students learn, process, retain information, and behave. Some of these include the following: visual, auditory, and tactile. Catering to a variety of styles ensures that all students will be able to be successful learners. It is especially important for the low achieving students who generally prefer to learn as one or more peers assist them, and as they are provided many hands-on experiences.
