The Importance of Switching Up Your Classroom Floor Plan

February 27, 2018

You pour a lot of your heart and energy into creating lesson plans for your students but don’t usually give the arrangement of the desks a second thought. This can be crucial in helping the students participate and working with one another in the class.

There are different formats to consider when planning your organization to maximize the educational experience for your students. These layouts can vary depending on the number of students you have as well. Here are a few common ways to lay out the desks and how these setups benefit your education goals:

Teacher or Student-Centered Class

This is great for setup for lecturing. it keeps all the students closer to the teacher and allows more interactivity too. It also helps to encourage more interactions between the students too.

Cluster Groups

With cluster groups, students are able to interact easily with their group to discuss ideas and projects to maximize the interaction. The groups can be sized depending on how big the class is.

Horseshoe Configuration

This is a U-shaped seating arrangement which allows us to get a first-hand view and allows the entire class to communicate with each other with far more ease.

Your class doesn’t have to remain static and in fact, can change day-by-day to work with your education plan for that day and get the maximum result.
