Are there any resources which would help me to understand how to plan the best layout of my students' desks and chairs, and especially the specific student locations in the class, taking into account students' individual needs, (such as bad eyesight, chatting with friends when I'm teaching, working in pairs, working in groups etc)? My class sizes are quite small, typically no more than 20 students (age 7-8 years), fairly balanced in numbers between boys and girls, with (of course), a range of abilities. It is a very happy class of students, no major issues at all. I should mention that this is in an overseas school (south-east Asia), and the children understand sufficient English to follow the KS II curriculum in all core subjects. The basic desk layout is 4 rows of 5 desks each. although I do move desks for group work. For the basic layout, I sit one girl with bad eyesight in the front row. I also sit a boy with ADHD in the front row so that I can quickly and gently steer him back to his desk when he goes 'walkabout'. The girls in the class all pay attention well, but there are a few boys who prefer to chat with their friends. So I 'surround' them with the girls' desks and this seems to work quite well to reduce the chit-chat. I'd appreciate some critique of my layout and suggestions for desk/student layouts that work well for group work, pair work, maintaining the attention of the class etc.
