The study found that teachers used discussion, question and answer, brainstorming, discovery, field trip and lecture methods as methods of teaching in catering for students‟ diversity. In addition, the study discovered that teachers used intrinsic motivation as well as awards like certificate which is extrinsic as a motivational technique in catering for students‟ diversity. Again, the study discovered that teachers used all the various assessment techniques thus traditional, authentic, performance and alternative assessment as a strategy in catering for students‟ diversity. Also, with regard to the resources used in catering for students‟ diversity, it was discovered that the history textbooks and syllabus dominate the history classroom with a slight use of visual materials in catering for diversity.
