Detailed information about our chats can be found here.

CHAT QUESTIONS: #BuildingSchoolCulture

1. Why is it important for schools to build a positive culture? Have you been part of a school with a strong school culture? What stands out?

2. What role do students play in building a school culture? Who else contributes to building a positive school culture?

3. What contributes to a negative school culture? What are some of the challenges to building a positive culture?

4. How can you make your school more inclusive in ways that involve others? Give examples.

5. How can building a positive school culture benefit students both academically and socially?

*The same 5 questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.
