2018 HEF Grant | Alternative Seating

Kelly Irish, English Teacher
Hudsonville High School

A HEF grant helped fund a high top table and seating for Mrs. Irish’s English classes at Hudsonville High School. Research shows that students who have the ability to move around stimulate the brain more than those who are just seated. This movement can be as simple as the swinging of legs or the positioning of the body. Alternative seating changes the climate of the classroom, allowing for improved productivity, discussion, and outside the box thinking.
