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 October 20, 2013.

1. When it comes to the privatization of public schools, are proponents advocating for students or investors? (By @RYHTexas)

2. We’re going to force the C’s: Conversation, Clarification, Connection, Cognition, and Closure. – LYS Principal, Mike Ritchey (By @LYSNation)

3. Educators: Are you an effective teacher? What does data on your “fragile students” say? This data gives you the honest answer. (By @donnaobrian1)

4. I love performance data that is declining. It means we’re in a position to clearly identify something that doesn’t work. (By @LYSNation)

5. “Small Group Purposeful Talk cleanses the palate.” Thanks Ms. Allen! (By @CabidaCain)

6. Here’s some transparency for you… On the last common assessment my babies went from 24% passing to 37% passing. Growth is growth! (By @TraciTousant)

7. I have yet to meet the student a zero cured. (By @donnaobrian1)

8. Reading instruction without wide reading practice is like training for football, singing, or cooking without expecting to actually do any of them. (By @STAARtest)

9. If it’s boring to you, it’s boring to them. (By @sjunkins)

10. Myth: That you will always be supported for doing the right thing. Not true when it shakes up others’ comfort zones. (By @MsRossEnglish)

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
