    Does this interview question mean the physical aspects of an ideal classroom? Or more like what actually happens inside of the classroom? How would you answer this?

    I'd discuss your ideal teaching and learning process within the classroom, including cooperation with parents and administration. If you want to include physical aspects of your classroom, talk about how you would use the space to support learning.

    In addition to what catnfiddle suggested, I'd also talk about the culture of the classroom and the types of relationships I'd want to have with the students and the relationships that I'd want them to have with each other.

    I don't think they want to hear about the physical aspects of the room. You can hedge your bets by mentioning activities in particular area of the classroom though if you are worried that you're misunderstanding the question.
