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 June 7, 2015.

1. A challenge to all leaders attending summer learning: Go back, take action, and DO what you tweeted or posted about. (By @CabidaCain)

2. The best intervention is great instruction. (By @JohnWink90)

3. There’s a big difference in leading people and managing things! (By @herbertoneiljr)

4. I call ’em like I see ’em.  Common Core hysteria needs an official tin foil hat to identify its followers. (By @RatliffT)

5. Today’s best practices were once someone’s innovative new idea. Don’t get stuck in (or with) a box! Be an innovator not an imitator! (By @TeachLearn68)

6. Schools that blame programs misunderstand technical versus adaptive challenges.  It’s all about coaching and support! (By @tra_hall)

7. We ask those experimenting on our children with exotic, unproven education policies to stop. Now. (By @pastors4txkids)

8. If instruction stops after the high stakes test, it’s hard to believe your argument that teaching is more than a test score. (By @BluntEducator)

9. We regret having to speak so directly to those in authority this session. But not as much as we regret their bad bills harmful to our kids. (By @pastors4txkids)

10. Learning how The Fundamental 5 (Cain and Laird) can be the tool to increase relevance and rigor! (By @GloffMona)
