Seating Arrangements with Work Stations Transcript
Amy Spies: One strategy I use to help encourage cooperative learning is to have the desk grouped in four. I want to ensure that everyone still can see the front boards so I have no backs facing the board.
Amy Spies: What else do you notice is similar?
Amy Spies: I have found that having the students face each other and still have access to the board is important.
Amy Spies: Where'd this come from, my goodness, I didn't see that before.

Amy Spies: To helpe eliminate movement and have student have easy access to any materials or supplies that they need, I've grouped their four desks around a work station placed in the center and most of the supplies that students would need are located in the center. So they hve easy access. They're not moving around the room and they can get what they need without interrupting class time.
