Help me give my students a more comfortable classroom by having more flexible seating. Give the students the chance to stand during class and still be able to complete their work with standing desks.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am pleased to work with a diverse group of high school students. I work in a school with about 1200 students. Approximately 40% of our population receive free and reduced meals. I teach math to 10th and 11th grade academic and accelerated students.
Keeping students focused and making good choices is always on my mind.
I have several students who find it challenging to stay focused while sitting in a desk for 85 minutes. I would as well. I am also encouraging them to work together in class.
I would like to give my students the chance to stand up during class and still have a desk to work at. Having a class for 85 minutes is a long time to be in one seat. I would also like them to be able to work together. By using clipboards and stools, they can find a different spot in the classroom to work with a group of students.
Changing the seating and working area will help the students to focus on learning more.
I can see some students working collaboratively in a group with stools and clipboards while other students may be working together (or independently) at the standing desks.
