Fulfilling this project will help me create a warm, welcoming learning environment for my hardworking diverse urban scholars. My students have 80-minute classes and unfortunately sitting in traditional student desks for that length of time can make anything dull. I hope that by providing wobble chairs my active students will be able to get their wiggles out without disrupting others around them. Students who prefer to stand for part of all of the period would have counter height tables to enable them to maintain their focus on learning while stretching their legs and increasing blood flow. Bean bags and portable lap desks will allow students to change position for independent work or collaboration with partners or small groups. Flexible seating is all about offering students choice and opportunities to individualize their learning. None of us learn in exactly the same way but we are too often taught and expected to learn in the same way in schools. My goal with this project is to empower my students in my classroom.
