In this image, a teacher points to the blackboard at Belvedere Elementary School as students raise their hands. How do you show your teacher that you have a comment or question to share? Why do you think this rule is in place for your classroom?

Belvedere Elementary School was founded in 1887 as a one-room schoolhouse. As the town of Belvedere began to grow, the school also grew. In 1912, the Belvedere School became part of the Los Angeles City School District, now known as the Los Angeles Unified School District. Today the school is home to almost 800 students. While elements of this photograph may be outdated (chalkboard and Charlie Brown characters), students will identify with the raised hands and possibly the instruction that is focused on the discussion at the front of the class. Teachers may ask how the students are showing that they are eager to learn.
