If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS Tweets from the week of October 16, 2016 when they were first posted.  And if you are on Twitter, you might want to check out the Tweeters who made this week’s list.

1. After a long week I keep coming back to one quote I heard at the LYS Leadership Academy, “If not us, then who?” It kept me going! (By @hawkeshub) 

2. “In public education, the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.” -1954 (By @NAACP)

3. When a student makes a poor choice (which we all do), it’s the conversation, not the consequence, which makes all the difference. (By @justintarte)

4. “Complacency is powerful in that it is sneaky and often not apparent, taking years to cause long term damage” –C. Moore (By @clwilkens)

5. The Fundamental 5 (Cain & Laird), never gets old! Common sense, wisdom, and best practices for learning! (By @aprilamoney)

6. Nothing beats the Power Zone (The Fundamental 5). Putting your eyes on student work as it happens is the best form of assessment possible. (By @vhsaldana)

7. Lecture has its place… but consider if your class was recorded, how often would student voices be heard? (By @justintarte)

8. In effective schools, everyone plays a leadership role. (By @vhsaldana)
