Set Up of the classroom
Is it old fashioned to want the seating in rows, with everyone facing the front. This way when teaching the teacher can teach facing front and be able to see the whole class at one time?

I am not sure what the question is, but to my knowledge row seating is the best and most common option for teachers to use during the beginning of the school year. This way students focus are centered on the teacher instead of any distractions. Throughout the school year the teacher may change seating depending on their teaching style, activities, etc. If the teacher uses a lot of collaborative group work it would be best to keep the seating set up for that.

This is not old fashioned, this type of seating has been tested and proven to be effective in the classroom. I would not recommend keeping students in this seating the entire year, though.

Is this old fashioned? Yes.

Is being old fashioned a bad thing? Possibly. This depends entirely on what works best for your students. There are many ways to arrange a classroom and, while they all have their own advantages and disadvantages, they're not MANDATORY unless you are specifically having problems with everything else.

I agree with this. I personally beleive that change is a good thing and switching up the seating arrangement throughout the year can be a good thing.

Try different styles, U-shape or groups of 4, learn your students to fit their needs.

I don't see any problem with having the students in rows facing the front for you to see all of the students to teach. In my opinion, I like seating in squares or in some type of way so the desks are easy for the students to do group work or work with a partner.
