Keep Students from Sneaking a Peek with These Desk Dividers

Interior office with system office desks and TV.

No teacher wants to spend all day trying to catch children attempting to cheat off of one another. Sometimes, you’re going to need to get creative. Whether you’re investing in desk dividers to keep children focused or to keep children from succumbing to their worst behavior, these desk dividers are a great solution to keep little eyes on their own work.

You’ll appreciate that this desk divider is self-standing and is made from durable glass that can resist scratches and dents. It measures 17 by 23 inches and comes with a marker kit and tray.

You’ll like that these desk dividers are sold in sets of four. The three-sided setup ensures it’s only too obvious if a student decides to sneak a peek at another person’s work.

This desk divider measures 2 feet tall and is a bright and fun play on a privacy screen. When you’re done with private conversations, it folds flat for easy storage.

We like that this version of desk dividers is made with a bright white inner lining so students don’t feel like they’re in dark cubbies.

Expert Commentary

Desk dividers are effective solutions against distractions when your students need to work and submit outputs independently. These privacy boards, which fit most desks and are sturdy enough to stand on their own, allow learners to pour all their concentration into the task at hand. They’re also easy to put away as soon as the class shifts to interactive mode.
