The Value of Relationships

By Leigh Cassell

Global EDU Student Chat ( @GlobalEdSsChat) is a student-led Twitter Chat that connects K-12 students around the world to discuss topics related to character education, social justice, and citizenship. #GlobalEdSsChat creates opportunities for students to network with others, gain perspective, build relationships with new learning partners in a literacy-rich learning environment, experience social media as a powerful platform for learning, and establish a positive digital footprint.

This month’s GlobalEdSsChat team discusses the value of relationships using the following questions as a guide for the conversation:

1. What qualities do you look for in a healthy relationship?

2. How can you peacefully resolve conflicts in a relationship?

3. How do your relationships with others change your perspectives? What value do you think those relationships add to your daily life?

4. How is a relationship with a teacher different than a relationship with a parent?

5. Think of a memorable teacher in your life. What made your relationship so meaningful?
