My students are from different cultural and economic backgrounds. As I'm starting the year with two blocks of ELA and social studies classes with students with different learning styles and academic abilities, I want to give them the best environment to do so. In each class, we have EL students and general ed students. I think putting students with different abilities and backgrounds together can make learning exciting and an enriching experience for everyone! My students have shown me how united they can be, even with their differences.
My students are active and energetic learners. They need to move around and have the freedom to find a perfect area and space for them to complete tasks. Therefore, with more flexible seating options, they can have different opportunities to find that spot to work diligently. They will have the responsibility to do their assigned task but with choices on where to sit. My students will also learn to be accountable for decision-making because they will have a voice and choice on where they want to learn. Students do not all learn the same way, so they need different options so I can teach them all!
