I teach World History and A.P. European History to 9th-12th graders at a semi-rural public school in Eastern North Carolina. Many of my students will be first generation college students. Some of them are also taking honors and higher level history classes for the first time.
I love my students.
I want only the best for them. Over the past few years, I have implemented Project Based Learning in my classroom. It has been a great success. The students are constantly collaborating and using different resources to learn the curriculum.
In order to continue with their progress, my students need to be able to move around the room more easily to freely collaborate. Many times the tables and chairs we have make this hard to do.
Giving students the ability to sit in different areas of the room and work comfortably will allow them to think, create, and implement new and exciting ideas with the content they are learning.
My students learn in many different ways. My classroom is often abuzz with students working on collaborative activities. They are constantly engaged in designing and implementing their Project Based Learning assignments.
It is very hard to be a social studies superstar when you are uncomfortable.
I love my students. I also love Project Based Learning. Providing my students the ability to sit comfortably with organized supplies, will enable the learning and productivity in my classes to increase.
I am asking for bean bag seating, a coffee table, and a cube storage unit. Having these items will allow for smaller groups, better collaboration, and academic success.
