1. Establish an intervention time that keeps kids from being pulled from core instruction. They can’t learn what they don’t have access to… (By @Snowmanlearning)

2. The instructional goal shouldn’t be a beautifully filled-in graphic organizer, but organized thinking. (By @CarolJago)

3. Teachers who don’t like technology say, “I can’t see what’s happening in the back of the room!” I say, “So get up.” They look shocked. (By @kevinhoneycutt) 

4. Assessment is not about results, it is about data. (By @RandyMBrown)

5. Every piece of walk-thru data is an extension of student voice telling us if learning is occurring. We should listen. (By @writingtired)

6. Assessment should not be a goal, assessment should be a tool. (By @RandyMBrown)

7. I think the more we focus on the way things ‘used to be’ the more we miss out on the way things ‘can be.’ (By @justintarte)

8. Results are about “Why did this happen?” Not about “Why did this happen to me?” (By @RandyMBrown)

9. “No one became a teacher because they loved copying notes off a board.” (BY @thomascmurray)

10. I’m sitting in North Dakota Council of Educational Leaders Conference session and the data expert presenter referenced, The Fundamental 5. (By @Paul777Mary)
