Over the past few years, Beck has looked at the Ron Clark Academy as a model school. We have closely observed the student/ teacher interactions and the overall level of student engagement to determine what aspects of this highly affective school could be brought back to Beck. One of these aspects is the idea of 'No Hand Raising'. During class discussions, we do not want our students raising their hands to speak, rather, we would like to actively engage in the conversation by paying attention to the speaker, waiting for that person to complete their thought, before adding to the conversation.

This classroom management expectation is taught to students so that everyone has the same opportunity to engage in the conversation. Students can't speak a second time before everyone in the class has had a chance to speak. This ensures that students are mindful of what they are adding to the class discussion and giving everyone an opportunity to speak.
