1. Today is all about student engagement. Quite simple, begin by Framing Your Lesson. (By @fosterbkay)

2. I wish we would jump through as many hoops to ensure our struggling students have small class size and great teachers as we do for our GT and AP students.

3. If we can move the most academically fragile kids just a little bit, imagine what would happen to the entire student population! (By @MosserEarthSci)

4. “The real art of conversation is not to say the right thing at the right time but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” (By @DrRichAllen)

5. How about for teacher appreciation week, we adequately fund schools and don’t steal teacher retirement benefits? I’m looking at you, Texas Legislature.

6. Brain Bits: Calling on the first hands that go up signals the slower retrievers to stop the retrieval process. (By @AskDrMeredith)

8. Louisiana Supreme Court has ruled the funding method for the state’s school voucher program is unconstitutional. (By @RYHTexas)

9. This is the time when we need to be the most motivated!!!! Keep the energy up. Observe, be creative, make connections and finish strong. (By @nickthegreek729)
