Yesterday, Dr. Laird and I approved the final digital proof for our book, “The Fundamental Five: The Formula for Quality Instruction”. This means that we will get the hard copy draft in our hands within 10 days and the book will be available within 30 days. To say that we are excited is an understatement. And as many of you have already requested, we promise that there will be a release event and a book signing or two, so watch the blog and the LYS Nation Twitter feed for more details. Since we noticed some data anomalies a little over four years ago, the Fundamental Five has taken a life its own. Dr. Laird and I have conducted over 15 national presentations to thousands of board members and district administrators. There have been over two hundred campuses that have adopted the Fundamental Five as its core instructional framework. And LYS has trained over ten thousand of teachers on how to seamlessly integrate the Fundamental Five into their daily routine. The results have been nothing less than stunning. But as a LYSer, you already know that. Which brings me to a favor that I want to ask the LYS Nation. Send me your Fundamental Five anecdote, success story, or endorsement. When I share with the world the success of the LYS Nation, I’m often accused dealing in hyperbole. No one wants to believe that they are not already working at the peak of effectiveness. So let me attach some more names and schools to this continuing story of student, teacher and school success. Think. Work. Achieve.
