The focus of this Capstone Project is the advantages of Flexible Seating. This is important because students thrive off of choice in the classroom and Flexible Seating offers many ways for a student’s success. It is argued that teachers should implement Flexible Seating because of the increase in collaboration, student engagement, and overall success. The primary stakeholder perspective chosen was a veteran teacher who has implemented Flexible Seating and their fifth grade class, this is because of their experiences with this classroom design. Three themes emerged from an analysis of the data and were explored as ways to address the issue presented. Based on an analysis of the interviews and the relevant research literature, the researcher used what they learned to formulate an action that responded in a way that inspires, informs, or involves a particular audience.
