1. Congratulations to LYSer, Dr. Sylvester Perez! He is the new Superintendent in San Antonio ISD. Who will be next? (By @LYSNation)

2. In the zone! Making lesson frames, quality questions, and critical writing prompts for every lesson! Excited! (By @TarynOurso)

3. (Frequent Small Group Purposeful Talk) Wondered how students could be engaged by a 2-hour movie and struggle with a 50-minute class? Did the research and found that the average movie scene lasts 1 to 3 minutes! (By @jaredpeters23)

4. Average secondary student writes 1.6 pages a week in English & 2.1 pages in all other classes. Not enough to learn to write well (Applebee). (By @CarolJago)

5. Some say, “What if we spend money training teachers and they leave?” I say, “What if we don’t train them and they stay?” (By @twhitford)

6. I’m not overselling this: The Fundamental 5 is the unifying theory of the successful classroom. (By @LYSNation)

7. Most people are in favor of progress, it’s the changes they don’t like. (By @principalspage)

8. I’m a tech guy, but if you are looking for technology to SOLVE your instructional problems then you are looking to REPLACE teachers. (By @LYSNation)

9. Before entering a job interview, mentally review all of the times you were brilliant and successful. (By @StanfordBiz)

10. The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) just rocketed past 35,000 copies sold! Thank you, LYS Nation!!! (By @LYSNation)
