Classroom Spotlight: Student Standing Desks

An Outlet for Energy

Deer Creek Middle School uses an interdisciplinary curriculum focusing on application of STEM areas to a problem-based learning model. Students learn to work in collaborative teams to put their knowledge into action to solve real-world problems.

After introducing LearnFit® Standing Desks to its language arts class, the school is leveraging the mobility and height-adjustment of the desks, allowing easy break-outs of students into small groups for script writing, debate preparation, short story diagramming or solo essay work. Notably, students now have a natural outlet for fidgeting, being able to adjust their position and posture to expend pent-up energy, which can lead to more alert and attentive behavior.
