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 26, 2014.

1. A child’s educational future should not be determined because of geography. (By @DrJerryRBurkett)

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

3. When teachers say that asking kids to write more will require them to grade more, I tell them not to grade it. Just provide feedback. (By @gunnellAP)

4. Being viewed as a great leader instead of a great manager is the daily goal. If a conversation about you starts with “He’s a nice guy,” time to adjust. (By @blitzkrieg607)

5. Just found out that Tarleton State University is using The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird). The list of universities keeps growing. (By @LYSNation)

6. If the Superintendent visiting campuses is a “surprising” practice in your district, then that is a symptom of deeper problems. (By @LYSNation)

7. Timely advice: Change before you have to.  Don’t wait until things are falling apart. (By @CarrieRossTx)

8. School attorney Mike Leasor’s advice to teachers posting inappropriate things on social media: “Remember where you work.” (By @TerryAbbott)

9. Texas ranks 48th in state per student spending; 20th in prison funding. Ouch. (By @S_Snell)

10. Just found out that due to popular demand, I’m presenting a second session at the NASSP National Conference in Dallas, February 6-8, 2014. (By @LYSNation)
