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 August 10, 2014.

1. Dear “Cut All Taxes” Political Candidate: Either you’re pandering, which is not leadership; or you believe the rhetoric, which is not smart. (By @LYSNation)

2. If you are not stepping on anyone’s toes there is a good chance you are not walking the walk. (By @casas_jimmy)

3. Critical Writing in math is a must! Not just because the district says so, but because it is the right thing to do for students!! (By @fosterbkay)

4. “Our eyes are our biggest source of sensory input.  If you see change, you start to believe change.” (By @MagnoliaJrHigh)

5. The one talking about the content is the one building improved understanding of the content. Who is doing the talking in your classroom? (By @LYSNation)

6. Encourage teachers to praise only the behaviors that deserve praise. “Good job everybody!” is not specific or accurate. (By @TinneyTroy)

7. When teachers are proactive, time spent on correction in the classroom should begin to diminish. Begin instruction by greeting students at the door. (By @TinneyTroy)

8. Beliefs vs Behavior is not a Chicken vs Egg question. Instructional cues matter. Beliefs follow behavior. (By @JasonJj7)

9. College athlete prospects: If you’re going to post stupid stuff on Twitter, better learn how to fill out student loan applications. (By @CoachDPenrod)

10. Just notified that The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird) just passed 63,000 copies sold! Thank you, LYS Nation!! (By @LYSNation)
