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 February 2, 2014.

1. Fundamental 5 practices are no longer a thing we do on campus but what we do in our classrooms daily. No gimmicks. Just great instruction. (By @blitzkrieg607)

2. Don’t build your district and/or campus around tests… What happens if the tests change? Build around processes and systems. Re: Foundation Trinity. (By @brandyjbaker)

3. If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about their answers. (By @RatliffT)

4. Confidence comes not from always being right but not fearing to be wrong. (By @CoachKWisdom)

5. Proximity! Research shows kids learn better when they are close to the teacher.  Makes me think of the Power Zone. (By @mrsarismusa)

6. Taking notes on a laptop encourages “mindless transcription.” Using a pen leads to better learning. (By @anniemurphypaul)

7. The “public schools are failing” narrative is pervasive even though the facts aren’t there to support the claim. (By @RYHTexas)

8. Today’s Quote:  “The first rule of teaching:  Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good learning story.” (By @DrRichAllen)

9. The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) just sold out at the NASSP Conference Bookstore! Thank you, LYS Nation! (By @LYSNation)

10. Found out that Tusculum College is using The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) in its M.Ed. Program. That makes at least 13 universities! (By @LYSNation)
