survival and diversity in classrooms

“Is there only one way to survive?”

I too think there are lots of ways to survive.  And that in turn seems to me to bear on the "problem" of classroom diversity.  It is indeed an "overwhelming task for teachers" to convey to a very diverse group of students any particular way to survive.  My guess is it would be easier if we allowed different students to develop their own distinctive survival strategies, and easier still if we encouraged students to share their works in progress with and learn from each other.
