This blog, from August 2015, was recently shared with me. Written by high school English teacher Nicholas Provenzano, it offers specific benefits for teachers who remove their desk from the classroom. The idea of “ditching” the teacher desk, which Provenzano proposes will improve the learning environment of the classroom, is further supported by the evidence that sitting is associated with increased health risks. So if your classroom needs a makeover, consider ditching your desk!
