From the Paper:

"Because so much time is spent in the classroom, teachers should make it attractive, comfortable and functional. The physical aspects of a classroom include room arrangement, seating, displays and climate. All of this taken into consideration creates a safe learning environment in which students are comfortable with sharing ideas. Seats should be arranged so there is no congestion and the teacher can see all the students. The seat organization should help the students feel organized, this could mean assigned seats."
