What type of classroom desk is ideal?

An Effective Classroom Desk

There is no one single style of classroom desk which is ideal for all classroom situations. The classroom desk which is most effective is the desk which is the most conducive to learning, given the intended purpose of the classroom.

When selecting a classroom desk there are a number of different options to consider. Desks may or may not have chair attached, may or may not have book baskets and may be constructed of a variety of different materials.

The height of the desk as well as the seat height, if attached, should also be considered. While some of the factors to consider are a matter of personal preference, other considerations should be based on the ideal scenario for the average student in the class.

The seat height should be sufficient for the students to rest their feet comfortably on the floor while seated. There should also be approximately 8 to 10 inches of clearance between the top of the seat and the bottom of the writing surface.
