2. We should hear less “Be Quiet,” and more “Talk about what you are learning,” in our classrooms. (By @Snowmanlearning)

3. “Frequent Purposeful Talk is a great way to monitor understanding and document the effectiveness of our RTI.” Karen Rocker (By @CabidaCain)

4. Teach students to read like detectives and write like investigative reporters. (By @Jeff_Zoul)

5. The ongoing discussion on school safety begins and ends with exterior door security. (By @LYSNation)

6. Many policymakers mean well but are blind to what actually happens in within the halls of schools. (By @RYHTexas)

7. Bad instructional practices + a good excuse = bad instructional practices. (By @LYSNation)

8. Rethinking Breaking Ranks, and then I see E. Don Brown’s name. Now it all makes sense! (By @TinneyTroy)

9. Morale follows performance. Focus on student success. As that improves, so will morale. (By @LYSNation)

10. It never gets old sharing this. The Number 1 best selling education book on Kindle, today? The Fundamental 5! Thank you, LYS Nation!! (By @LYSNation)

Think. Work. Achieve.
