1. Daily reminder: Calling out racism isn’t divisive. Racism is divisive. (By @sairasameerarao)

2. Great teachers build relationships and provide incentives, reasons and support to get students to: Show up; Work when they don’t want to; Try when they want to quit; Continue when it gets hard; Grind through adversity; Have hope; This is motivation. (By @LYSNation)

3. “You can teach what you have always taught. You can teach it almost the same way you have always taught it. Just add frequent, small-group, purposeful talk. More of your students will learn more of what you want them to know” —The Fundamental 5 by Cain and Laird (By @asc44)

4. “If you want students to be better readers, writers, and thinkers in every content area, then writing every day in every class is key. Be sure to make that informal and spontaneous writing short, frequent, and shared.” (By @SaraSuggs13)

5. A school must produce literate learners. This cannot be the realm of just ELA and must be immersed in all contents, in all places in a school. (By @RobFulk)

6. I’m confused why people think if kids have book choice and read interesting, engaging, respectful to their intelligence books, that somehow means they aren’t learning/ being taught the rules of phonics too. Of course we teach phonics! And kids choose books! It coexists! I swear! (By @MrazKristine)

7. Teachers: You may not be able to change the world, but you can change your students’ world. (By @PrayJCPSKY)

8. Our friend Diane Ravitch once again, as she consistently does, calls us to defend public education as the bulwark of church / state separation. The public school is the place our children become citizens who protect the religious liberty of all— not just some. (@pastors4txkids)

9. “The free public education, while guaranteed by our state constitution, is not actually granted by a government, but is a provision of God. Faith convicts us that all children deserve the chance at a great education.” (By @pastors4OKkids)

10. Courage is the ability to do the right thing, all the time, no matter how painful or uncomfortable it might be. –Tony Dungy (By @CoachMotto)

Think. Work. Achieve.
