A horseshoe layout is a way of organizing learners' seats in a class in the form of a horseshoe.
The teacher needs to use the board a lot in a class so arranges the seats in a horseshoe shape.
In the classroom
A horseshoe shape is a very effective way to organize the classroom, as it means the learners can see each other, the teacher and the board. Thus it is useful for whole-group work such as an open discussion or for a teacher-centred class.
