  1. Why is peer pressure an especially strong force in the life of a teenager? Why is it more common for them to give into peer pressure?
  2. Is there such a thing as positive peer pressure? 
  3. What is the most creative way to respond to  “but, everyone is doing it”?
  4. What are some things you can do to protect yourself and others from (negative) peer pressure?
  5. Is peer pressure a fact of life, or can it be eliminated? Should it be eliminated?

*The same 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.
