I am creating a classroom that values the process and not just the correct answer. A math classroom that focuses on the right answer tends to discourage thinking and the growth that comes from mistakes. In order for this to work, we use a lot of small group work(no more than 3 students at a time). The group work helps students consider how they explain their logic and thinking. It also allows students to have a safe space to share ideas and discover mistakes(which helps them improve at the Math). Discovering mistakes helps them ensure material comprehension. An added bonus to group work is the large growth in socioemotional learning and opportunities for students to encourage each other. The problem is that our desks have a chair attached and they are cumbersome and uncomfortable. It is very difficult for students to work in groups or even comfortably sit in their desks. Many of our students simply do not fit in the desks. This makes it very difficult to focus on the math when they are sitting. Also when we are trying to complete our group work, there is no space to collaborate and when we work on our vertical spaces(whiteboards), we struggle to reach them because of the amount of space the large individual desks take. We need tables and moveable chairs for our classroom. This would allow us to actually save space, allow students to sit comfortably, collaborate, and focus on math better, and allow us to push desks out of the way when we need to work on our vertical whiteboard spaces. The benefit of these whiteboards is a key to the thinking classroom as it provides a knowledge mobility and our version of "Creative Destruction" as we use ideas from others to combine it with our own.
