My colleagues and I were recently discussing how we arrange the desks in our rooms. I like what is referred to as the "bicameral" arrangement, with two sections of desks facing in toward an aisle in the center of the room. Since I tend to move within the aisle as I teach, I'm no farther than 4 seats away from any student; I also feel the layout lends itself to literature discussions. The only con I see is that the desks are a bit closer to each other; testing is not really an issue to me because I give multiple versions of any test. Most of my colleagues seem to prefer the traditional rows. What do you prefer and why? I'd love to hear some of your pros and cons.
