Mr. Lee from Torrance CA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Collaboration Today, Collaboration Every Day Part II

My students need trapezoidal tables because we are always in groups and this will save lots of time moving to and from our group setting which will allow for more student collaboration.

My Students

My students are 7th and 8th-grade social studies students from beautiful, sunny southern California. My kids are excited about history and we love to work collaboratively with each other. Our students collaborate on meaningful projects every day that require critical thinking, creativity, and communication in order for them to answer challenging questions or solve complex problems. By making learning relevant to them in this way, students see a purpose for mastering state-required skills and content concepts. My classes are blended courses (also known as hybrid or mixed-mode courses) which are classes where a portion of the traditional face-to-face instruction is replaced by web-based online learning.

My Project

Flexible classrooms give students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them and help them to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking. This is my second attempt trying to get enough tables so that my students can collaborate as a group. My students need trapezoidal tables because we are always in groups and this will save lots of time moving to and from our group setting which will allow more student collaboration. When my students are engaged in standards-focused project-based learning, they are working in teams to experience and explore relevant problems, questions, issues, and challenges; then creating presentations and products to share what they have learned. My role is one of coach, facilitator, guide, advisor, or mentor; it is not one of directing and managing all student work.
