A number of you in the LYS Nation are now Twitter users.  If you haven’t done so yet, we want you to join us.  To let you see what you are missing, here are the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of September 1, 2013.

1. While goals cannot be accomplished without activity, it is easy to confuse activity with accomplishment. (By @OCTKinney)

2. Little disinterests me more than those who blame students, their parents, community, or other external factors for low academic performance. (By @tgrierhisd)

3. Hey anti-school funding faction: Cheap doesn’t get skilled and skilled doesn’t come cheap. No matter how much you stomp your feet and wish. (By @LYSNation)

4. When you average all the scores in the semester, you are saying that the scores in the beginning are as important as the scores in the end. (By @justintarte)

5. Allowing for some small group purposeful talk turns meetings into meaningful discussions! (By @RandyMBrown)

6. Note taking isn’t copying. Copying is simply turning your students into slow speed Xerox machines. Not a high yield practice, just a task. (By @LYSNation)

7. “Off Task” and “No Task” are the same thing. Off Task is student driven so we punish the behavior. No Task is teacher driven so it’s ignored. (By @LYSNation)

8. Instructional coaching is intentional and specific! (By @kimbarker25)

9. My son received a postcard from his teacher this week telling him how wonderful he is! I love her already!! (By @fosterbkay)

10. The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) just blasted past 41,000 copies sold! Thank you, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve.
