These tables and chairs will help me to continue implementing cooperative learning strategies in my classroom. Currently, my students have desks with attached chairs, making it nearly impossible to create a truly cooperative environment. These strategies go far beyond the classroom, teaching students to communicate effectively and learn together. These tables will contribute to achieving this goal. Going far beyond typical "group work," cooperative learning creates a structured environment where EVERY student participates and is motivated to both learn and teach. Students will use these tables to lead discussions with their peers, which teaches them both content and communication skills. Specifically, students will interact by discussing literature with each other, and forming conclusions as a group. They will learn to work with those that are different than them, and learn how to find value in others. Students will also participate in projects such as posters, presentations, podcasts, and more. These tables allow students to be in close proximity and to share a space more effectively. Without tables, students are bogged down by the inconvenience of trying to group their desks together, and often end up quitting before the cooperation begins. These tables will help me to see the full impact that cooperative learning can have on a classroom.
