Mrs. Gutwerk from Oak Ridge NJ is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need some flexible seating to begin to change the culture of the classroom.
Our school is working hard on morphing our culture into one that is students driven. Gone are the days when students sit idly listening to a teacher speak AT them for 55 minutes. We are looking at ways that help engage our students to use inquiry-based techniques to drive their instruction. We have become facilitators to their learning.
I see 120 students!
They range in ability levels from ELL to College Prep. I have students who are on the course to attend 4-year colleges, 2-year community colleges, and some who are attending technical school to learn a trade.
Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During class discussions, I hope to utilize the markable top to allow students to have silent discussions. I want to create an environment where students are comfortable and a place where they want to be.
As we have modernized our curriculum, I want the physical space to match that!
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The high-top tables and high stools will bring a cafe style feel to my room.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
