Classroom Layouts

Classroom Layout 1 is an example of group learning. This layout is often seen in World Language classrooms as it provides the best environment for lessons that include students working together to converse in French about a new topic or using a new grammar technique. This is done a lot in the French classroom, therefore, this layout will be utilized often. In ELA, students will be able to easily collaborate, either discussing readings or working together on projects such as writing group essays. They can also hold group discussions about a certain topic, whether it be analyzing a text or peer reviews of essays.
Classroom Layout 2 is an example of an effective layout for a class discussion. The desks on the side of the room are for students to put their stuff by their regular spot at their table. They can then pick a seat or, for classroom management purposes, their seats will be assigned to them, and they will have no distractions with them such as books, papers to doodle on, or cell phones which they will be instructed to leave in their bags or their pockets (it will be easy to see when a student is checking their phone from their pocket because there is no desk for them to hide behind). This layout makes it easier for students to discuss the chosen topic with one another and students will be able to participate a little easier by being in the circle as opposed to their separate grouped desks.
Classroom Layout 3 is an example of a more teacher directed lesson. For example, in the French classroom, when students learn a new conjugation, a new verb tense or a new set of vocabulary words, it is imperative that they learn the pronunciations and spellings of these words in order to be successful when using them. This lesson would be mostly directed by the teacher with a bit of student input where they are able and a follow up activity for the students to do, either separately or together, that reinforces what they have just learned and helps them to practice with the new topic. In ELA this classroom set up could be used for learning the parts of an essay, a new grammar technique, or new vocabulary from a class assigned book, etc.
We believe these classroom layouts to be the most efficient for providing environments that promote student success in our classrooms. The setups will be changed throughout the school year to accommodate for activities that we will be doing in our classes.
