For the 12/10/14 post, The Doing  / Understanding Gap,” a number of LYS district and campus leaders responded with comments. Here are just a few of them:

SC, A message that every instructional leader needs to hear. Well done.

SC, Sometimes I wish there was a “like” button on the daily LYS email. We were just talking about this with our Leadership Team.

SC, For people who think redundant training, they should look at military life (after basic training).  It is drill, drill, drill, train, train, train… Until the brain, muscles and actions are one.  I did drills and training so much I dreamed about it in my sleep. It became not just second nature, but rather our nature.  And that was the point.

SC Response The Typical Campus 3 years ago we had an in-service training on Program ABC.

2 years ago we had an in-service training on Program MNO.

Last year we an had in-service training on Program STU.

This summer we had training on Program XYZ.

What’s next?

The Atypical Campus 3 years ago we had embedded training on Program ABC.

2 years ago we had extended embedded training on Program ABC.

Last year we extended embedded training, with local adjustments, on Program ABC

This year, we have internal staff leading embedded training on program ABC.

We are getting really close to really getting good at it.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
