I teach French at an urban 9-12 high school where my students come from diverse backgrounds, many of which do not look like me. However, we all share a passion to learn about the French culture, language, and history of the French-speaking world. I am fortunate to be able to have many of my students in French class for 2-3 years and because of that, I am able to create a unique, positive classroom climate where all students feel welcome.
I have been personalizing learning for students for 3 years and I am able to offer my students some choice in the pace, path and place that they learn. They have different ways to show their understanding of the French concepts we are studying and I would like to offer them greater choice in the place that they learn.
Occasionally, learning can get loud, and some of my students prefer a quieter learning space, so they choose to work in the hallway.
Students who work in the hallway usually sit on the floor when completing their work. By providing a table with wheels, students would be able to easily move the table into the hallway and have a work space to work at instead of sitting on the floor.
