Help me give my students new desks to use in the classroom for more cooperative learning experiences!
When you walk into my classroom you see students who are all different: different academic levels, different ages and most importantly, student with all different learning styles and preferences.
My class is constantly changing from class period to class period, but with each student that enters my room, it is my job to give them every opportunity to reach their full potential.
As a teacher, I am always looking for ways to help meet my students' needs and enhance their learning environment. In the classroom, I feel it is important for students to work with other students and learn the skill of teamwork through cooperative learning during their school years. Students, I feel, are the best teachers and are great at helping each other stay accountable for their learning by helping their peers.
Currently, in our classroom, we have 11 individual student desks. Each student comes in each day and sits down at his or her own desk. When asked to work with a peer in the classroom, or get into groups, this seating is not always ideal.
Imaging walking into a classroom that is flexible with the seating.
Students are at desks that are designed to move into various shapes to help make it easier for them to work in cooperative groups as a team. With these trapezoid shaped desks students can work in pairs, small groups, and even arrange the desks in a circle for class discussions.
This project will give us more flexibility when it comes to student-centered learning in the classroom. Students will be able to work in groups in a more functional way.
