Table Talk Teaches Tolerance

Help me give my students four tables to support collaboration in our classroom.

My Students

In my class, I strive daily to prepare my students for the world with not only knowledge but to bestow upon them a zest and passion for lifelong learning. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet.

They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers.

They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long, successful careers.

My Project

My classroom is a project-based learning classroom. This requires students to learn by collaborating with peers and asking questions about various topics. In order to do that, students must be able to talk to each other. Currently, we have desks, and desks in the classroom do not provide ample opportunities for collaboration. Instead, desks are similar to islands, a defined space that is separated from other spaces. Tables, on the other hand, would provide a better opportunity for my students to work together and have productive discussions on different topics we study during the school year. Tables in the classroom not only require students to sit together but makes it much easier to collaborate!

Our society demands workers to be able to collaborate.

Practicing collaboration in the classroom is the best way for my students to perfect this skill. However, in order for my students to practice collaboration, they need to have tables in the classroom.
