Teachers, which do you think is most effective in the classroom, tables or desks?
What works and why? Tables or desks?
Different methods work for each age group. Elementary is the youngest age group of schooling after Pre-K, the younger kids are the more easily distracted they can be. For elementary schooling, desks work best because kids are spaced out so they wont be as easily tempted to talk to other peers. For middle school and high-school tables would work more efficiently. Pre-teens and teens are more mature therefor they would not be more tempted to talk. They would be more trusted to be close to friends, enjoying the class and knowing when to stop talking and work on classwork that was given.
I think tables work better for older groups of students because as a student, I usuallly learned just as much (if not more) from my fellow classmates as from the teacher. I think it's important to have a lot of discussion and intellient debate or collaboration time for older students -- high school and college.
I think for young kids, it's mostly a distraction, but group discussion time is still really important. More control as far as when this is appropriate is needed, maybe, with younger kids and junior high students.
