Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our town is a small industrial town in Coastal Mississippi. My students are typically in grades 9-12 and learn anything from Mississippi history, Psychology and even state tested U.S. history in my class.
My students are curious, savvy, and energetic.
They want what works best for them, and due to the large low-income population in our town, they don't always get it. Despite many challenges, my students work hard to learn and thrive in school. Each is unique and learns in his or her own way. I want to give them options to learn at the optimal level.
Space is a valuable commodity, especially in a classroom with growing teenagers. My students have a variety of seating but need more space for reading, writing and interactive projects. I have two tables already in my classroom and children thrive in this seating arrangement.
As methods of teaching expand, so should our students' seating options!
Long tables will give my pupils the ability to collaborate, discuss and spread out! Much of what is done in my classroom is project-based. This means students need a place to utilize a variety of sources and materials. Often they will have to complete work on the floor. Tables will give them a communal space to work together.
