It is not only the seating arrangement of the classroom but also the way students are distributed in the class that affects significantly the students’ learning. In the teacher-centered (traditional) seating arrangement style, students sit one after another in columns facing the teacher. The place they prefer to sit brings some advantages and disadvantages in terms of learning and participation. For a teacher to know about the personal features of the students and about how effective their deskmates are helps her/him know about them more. In this study, the sitting place preferences of students are studied using the geography metaphor. The purpose of the study is to determine the students’ preferences about the place to sit in teacher-centered (traditional) classrooms in terms of their personal characteristics and the characteristics they look for in their deskmates based on their perceptions.
