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 January 12, 2014.

1. A great lesson begins by planning how you will Frame the Lesson. (By @fosterbkay)

2. A story being told over, and over, and over, makes people believe it is the ONLY story, and that is what is shaping education. (By RYHTexas)

3. A scope and sequence that is not aligned to standards of accountability is of no use to teachers. (By @LYSNation)

4. If you lead by cutting corners, you will eventually find yourself going in a circle or trapped in the last corner. NO WAY OUT.  Do it right! (By @txschoolsupe)

5. I believe strongly in The Fundamental 5; I practiced it as a successful teacher for 10 years before I read the book. (By @NSeyah)

6. We spend four times the money to keep someone in prison than we do to keep them in school! (By @Dr_Chap_JISD)

7. Anyone could be a leader if there was no cost. True leaders willingly pay a price, to sacrifice self-interest, to have the honor to lead. (By @simonsinek)

8. I love the grit and fearlessness of the good inner-city teacher. (By @LYSNation)

9. Inspired after reading The Fundamental 5, by Cain and Laird, join the LYS Nation. (By CathyHollings7)

10. The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) just blew past 50,000 copies sold! Thank you, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)
