Differentiated Seating for Differentiated Learning!
My students need differentiated seating such as this cafe table in order to meet differentiated learning needs.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach at my alma mater in a relatively small blue-collar suburban community. The majority of my students come from lower incomes that qualify for free or reduced lunches.
Regardless of their socioeconomic background, students have a safe place in my classroom where we celebrate together the joy of reading, studying, and creating literature and poetry.
I typically teach 5-6 regular ed classes and 1-2 Pre-AP classes. My students have a wide range of intellectual ability, and, with that being said, they finish different assignments at different times.
The definition of differentiate is: to recognize or ascertain what makes (someone or something) different. As a teacher, I am doing this daily. I recognize that all students learn differently, and I do my best to meet all those different needs of my students. Something that I learned about in college, and that I have been really interested in, is "differentiated seating."
Differentiated seating pertains to a student's learning environment.
Some students learn best when they are sitting on soft seating such as a couch, while others learn best on hard seating such as a school desk. All in all, this year I would like to focus on giving my students options on different seating. I would like to start with a cafe style table, and get more options for my students in the future.
