1. Advice to the new and veteran LYSers for 2013/2014: Don’t just adopt the Foundation Trinity / Fundamental 5; implement it. (By @brandyjbaker)

2. Had such a great day. Sean & Lesa Cain presented Framing the Lesson. Valuable tool to focus instruction. Thank you. (By @LindaHenrie1)

3. It all comes back to baseball, you’ve got to close your lesson or you lose the game in the bottom of the 9th! (By @hjgrubbs)

4. Formative assessment isn’t really formative until we use the information to adapt instruction. (By @csm0004)

5. Our job is to teach the kids we have – not the kids we want – not the kids we used to have – but all of the kids we have right now. (By @HeelanPride)

6. Teachers loved the Frame the Lesson training and said it was motivating them to improve! Great to have another Cain in the room with practical implementation info. (By @hjgrubbs)

7. Typical grading practices measure, “Who got it first,” better than “Who got it.” (By @LYSNation)

8. Senator Patrick, leave curriculum decisions to local districts and keep politics out of the classrooms. (By @qgodwin)

9. I hate when the Tea Party treats CSCOPE like its some Black Helicopter stuff and kills any actual credibility conservatives have. (By @MattMFoster)

10. Another pop quiz: What book is the No. 1 best selling education title on Kindle, today… Again? The Fundamental 5! Thank you, LYS Nation!!! (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve.
