I work with over 210 students in their 9th and 10th English classes each day here at Anclote High School. I work IN 7 different classes and am trying to find a way to reduce the overbearing class size and noise distractions that effect my students. I have been pulling students from groups of 5-15 in smaller groups and we often sit outside of the classroom in a quiet place to get our reading and class work done. Students often sit in classroom chairs or opt to sit on the cold, hard concrete floor when they come to my small reading groups. I'd like to change this and offer a more comfortable alternative. I came up with the idea of "Reading & Relaxing". Students can come out and expect to be comfortable as they learn. The seating would be compact and easy to fit and store into a close by closet at school when not being used. I was pretty specific when choosing the seating. Our school is big on promoting a secondary education post high school and our staff promotes colleges from all over the country on the first Wednesday of the month when all staff are encouraged to wear their college gear. I'd like to expand on this by including our college theme into the "Reading & Relaxing" plan. I am looking to have chairs with our state of Florida's college logos on them. I found some at DICKS sporting goods and plan to incorporate some of our well known universities including Florida State University, The university of South Florida, The University of Miami and yes, even my college's rival- The University of Florida. What better way to get our students prepared for higher learning then through additional educational supports, small group instruction and a comfortable setting.
