Worthington Direct (http://worthingtondirect.com), a supplier of school, church and early childhood furniture and equipment for over 12 years has created an easy to navigate school desk category for teachers and school administrators. A quick visit to the Worthington Direct website will save precious time now that each school desk has been categorized by style. Whether you are looking for individual student desks, two student desks, collaborative desks or teacher desks, you will find the right workspace for your classroom.
Many schools are purchasing classroom desks to match existing desks and will be able to click right through their purchases with the easy to identify desk categories located within the Desk tab on the Worthington Direct website. For those that are not yet sure which desks are best for their students or faculty, they will find the new categories helpful in selecting the appropriate classroom desk. http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/desks/desks.htm
Open Front Desks are the most popular in the elementary classroom because of their versatility. Features include adjustable legs and convenient storage under the desktop. Most tops are rectangular and can have a laminate or solid plastic writing surface. The book box can be metal, plastic or clearview (allowing no hidden objects). While metal book boxes may last longer, the plastic ones offer a variety of color choices without the risk of paint scratches and are quieter in a classroom of busy students.
A Lift Lid Desk is similar to an open front desk, but allows students to access to the contents inside the desk by lifting the top for storage. Some teachers may prefer this as it keeps students on task by keeping distractions to a minimum. http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/student_desks__classroom_desks/lift_lid_desks.htm
Combo Desks have a desktop attached to a student chair and are a great way to keep classroom rows neat and orderly. Options for the combo desks are sled based, and double entry used for both right and left-handed students. Construction of both types of desks can be laminate tops and soft plastic seats or solid plastic tops and seats. There are many variations of the combo and chair desks units. Combo and chair desks can offer additional rows of seating when the desks are flush to a wall. http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/desks/chair_desk_combos.htm
Junior Executive Desks offer plenty of room for your students' laptops, books and papers. The right-side book box has one shelf, and the modesty panel in the back of the student desk offers privacy. Adjust the legs on the tubular steel frame to fit growing kids. The high-pressure laminate desktop won't scratch or dent and keeps your student desks looking great for years. Junior Executive desks provide a wider working space than regular school desks, along with additional storage space for books and school supplies. http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/student_desks__classroom_desks/junior_executive_desks.htm
Two Student Desks save money and space in the classroom. Find adjustable height two student school desks at deeply discounted prices. Fit more students into a smaller classroom using these two student desks. Offered in a wide variety of styles, these school double-desks have been designed to fit any school decor with unique features such as a center book box, allowing for greater legspace, clearview bookboxes and even pedestal base student desks for reduced mobility students.
All students should be provided with a comfortable work environment as they learn. That's why Worthington Direct offers educators a wide variety of ADA and Wheelchair Desks for students who cannot easily work at a traditional school desk. ADA furniture meets strict federal ADA guidelines outlined by Sec. 12182 Part C of the Americans with disabilities act. These school desks have been designed specifically with wheelchair access in mind. Taller, wider and deeper, these ADA desks allow standard sized wheelchairs easy access to traditional desks by exceptional students. http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/student_desks__classroom_desks/wheelchair_desk.htm
New in the marketplace and growing rapidly are the newly designed Collaborative Desks, which offer a variety of shapes including trapezoids, hexagons, octagons and arcs. Collaborative learning environments are creating the need for desks that can be used individually, in pairs, small groups, semi-circles, or full circles as the lesson plans dictate. http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/student_desks__classroom_desks/collaborative_desks.htm
And last, but certainly not least are the Worthington Direct Teacher Desks and office desks that are sturdy and secure. Choose from several different colors and styles of desks for teachers. Both wood teacher desks and steel teacher's desks are available in single or double pedestal. The pedestal, a series of file drawers, serves to organize the enormous amounts of school paperwork. Teachers need their own personal work area at the front of the classroom - it's their place of authority! http://www.worthingtondirect.com/school_furniture/desks/office_and_teacher_desks.htm
