    I prefer desks
    By Cathy-Dee

    I do prefer desks but I can't imagine two person desks - I don't think I'd like those.

    Pros to desks
    - you can move them into groups, rows, etc., (more flexibilty in room layout)
    - storage of pens, etc.,
    - you can separate them for testing purposes

    Pros to tables
    - easier to do group work
    - may take up less room
    - sometimes easier to create more space simply by moving them

    Cons to desks
    - awkward to move
    - insides get cluttered
    - students play with items in desks
    - can take up a lot more room

    Cons to tables
    - need to find storage for pens, binders, etc.,
    - students are always in groups (makes socializing easier for students)
    - less flexibility in room layout
