  1. Leadership tip: Point out disappointing results. “We aren’t getting adequate return for our efforts. What needs to change?” (By @Leadershipfreak)


  1. At a certain point, the “TEST” flips from being a minimum standards bar to a maximizing student opportunity gauge. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Brutal facts about classroom rigor… students who are LISTENING/WATCHING are only at the KNOWLEDGE level. (By traci_tousant)


  1. The instructional program is completely in our control as educators. We control what we teach, when we teach it and how we teach it. The better we get at these three things, the better our students perform. (By @LYSNation)


  1. ‘What separates the good teachers from the bad? PEDAGOGY not Content!’ HOW you teach matters! (By @ThatMrsHackett)


  1. The high-performing school is not the school with the highest test scores. The high-performing school consistently outperforms its demographic peers. This definition factors out the performance drivers of Segregation and Life Experience. (By @LYSNation)


  1. If teachers aren’t teaching the right content at the right time, what the campus is really doing is working hard at getting further behind. (By @LYSNation)


  1. If you actually believe you can judge the quality of instruction or the quality of a teacher with just one short walk-thru… That means that you need to do a LOT more walk-thru’s. (By @LYSNation)


  1. Without realizing it, we sort students into groups of leaders and followers. We do this with the instructional strategies that we choose (or actually choose not) to use every day. (By @LYSNation)


  1. In the modern U.S school there are four primary drivers of student performance. These drivers are: 1. Segregation 2. Life experience 3. Instruction 4. Motivation (By @LYSNation)


Think. Work. Achieve.
