It is natural for teachers to focus on the former at the expense of the latter, but in fact, both are essential and interrelated. For example, some seating arrangements that are “optimal” for learning can actually invite misbehavior, depending on the classroom “chemistry” and emotional maturity of the students.

It is of vital importance, then, for the teacher to consider how the physical design of his or her classroom supports not only learning but also appropriate student behavior.
