Goal

To provide flexible seating where students would be able to choose comfortable places to read and work independently. 

 

What will be done with my students

I would like to create an environment in the classroom where the students can choose seating that fits their needs. In order to ensure effectiveness, the students will receive instructions on appropriate use of the area - including establishing ground rules to ensure that they are focused and their choices are conducive to learning. I will follow up with a learning style inventory and individual student assessments to ensure continuing effectiveness.  

 

Benefits to my students

The STARs Class is made up of struggling students who are below grade level expectation, lack motivation and have difficulty focusing. I believe that a key cause of student underachievement is that their individual learning style preferences are not always addressed properly in formal classroom settings. By providing a place where students can choose comfortable places to learn, they will be better able to better focus and they will actually help create an atmosphere where their learning styles will be nurtured - resulting in greater academic success. 

 

Describe the Students

I have a class of 18 students. They are low performers and have a high potential to be retained. The class is made up of ESE and General Ed. students
