How should I arrange the desks in my classroom?

School Furniture Arrangement

The style of furniture and the way you arrange it in the classs says a lot about your teaching style and the type of community you wish to build within the classroom. When children sit in rows, their focus is on a single point , the teacher. Communication with other children is discouraged because students' backs are visible in front of them and other faces are behind them. When children sit in a circle, they are invited to look at each other. When talking, they can easily see the entire class, and when they listen, they can see who is speaking.
