TWEET AND TALK  (LIVE MAY. 14th at 10AM)

Following the scheduled Tweet and Talk (YouTube Live Event), the recording of the Tweet and Talk will be posted on our website, and on our YouTube Channel for classes to use as a provocation.

CHAT QUESTIONS:

Body Image

1.  What is body image? (add “to you”?)

2. Why is it important to learn about body image?

3. How does social media portray the “ideal body image”? How does this affect how we view ourselves?

4. What is being done by various companies to promote a positive self-image?

5. What do love most about the way you look?

6. Who is your body image hero? Why?

*These 6 questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. Where necessary, questions have been reworded for younger Tweeters. 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.
