My students need collaborative space, and opportunities to move while learning.
I teach in an urban district adjacent to Flint, MI. My students are a diverse group of learners who work hard to overcome a multitude of obstacles. That said, they are brilliant. Their ability to find excitement and joy within the subjects that they are learning never ceases to amaze me.
To that end, I have become interested in the idea of flexible seating.
Honestly, I have been moving towards this idea for some time. Most teachers move their students to seats that they believe will better suit their learning style, give them a better focus on the material, or afford them a more agreeable orientation. I am, as always, impressed with how a subtle change in environment can have such a marked result in both performance and achievement.
My students are part of a district with a 92% rate of at-risk. They are beautiful, energetic, and eager to learn. Many of them have trouble settling down in a standard seating arrangement. In addition, many of my students do no have a place of their own in their own homes. Whether it is due to a transient lifestyle, moving in and/or out of the homes of family and friends, or sharing relatively small spaces with many siblings, they are fascinated with the idea of choice and space.
The objects that I choose will allow my students to find a space of their own.
A space in which they can focus and work to the best of their abilities. The seating cubes will work with the ottoman and couch I have to increase collaborative work space, and the under desk swing peddles will help to ease the excess energy my students create while creating.
