Standup Tables for Flexibility

My students need tables that are at standing height. Students are told to sit all day long, and just like us adults, they need to stand from time to time in order to remain focused.

My Students

My students are diverse in all facets. They come from a huge range of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and religions. Additionally, my students have a wide range of abilities and interests, and this applies to both my freshman classes and my upper class Creative Writing classes.

I strive to foster a love for reading and writing within all my students, as I have many reluctant readers and writers within my English classes.

This especially applies to my literacy intervention class, for whom I am constantly searching for ways to connect them to literature.

My Project

The Issue to Address: Many high school students struggle with remaining focused throughout the day, especially those with ADHD. We teachers expect students to remain seated all day long, but this is not the ideal learning situation for all students.

The Proposed Solution: I work hard to differentiate instruction for my students' varying learning needs; I want my classroom setup to reflect this approach by providing students standup tables for those who learn better while being more active.

I got the idea from brainstorming ideas with students in my afternoon freshman English class who seem to be unable to remain seated and focused throughout the period. The students think standup tables will be helpful because they will provide the students with an opportunity to move around a bit more while still being focused on the task at hand: learning.
