My Students

Most of my sixth graders live in a rural community in southern Indiana. Ages range from ten to twelve. Their interests include farming, sports, music, art, technology, and, of course, each other. They are very social; many of them are at a time in life when they are trying to fit in yet figure out who they are as individuals. In my English class, students will learn about grammar and writing. Other classes include math, science, reading, health, P.E., music, and art.

It is so important to me to foster a love of writing in my students.

Many of them come to my class with a limited, often negative, view of writing. We spend the school year exploring what makes good writing and working on narrative, persuasive, argumentative, and informational pieces.

My Project

When it comes to writing, I love to inspire and encourage writing any way I can. These new seating options will provide an alternative to students writing at their desks. We currently have lap desks to use around the room, but I would like to provide another seating choice.

Who doesn't enjoy a quiet, inviting place to work?

My hope is that my reluctant writers will be more interested in the writing task if they can choose a unique spot to write. In addition, those students who already love to write will enjoy a new place to work. I'm sure these creative seating options will encourage some amazing, creative writing!
