New graphic novel on restorative practices in school
Jul 22, 2009
Bully is Life Skoolz’s first graphic novel. The book is designed to teach relationship building skills and restorative practice rituals to Middle School aged children. It will be complete later this month and available for purchase by the middle of September.
I put it together because our kids need help. There has been a shift in what our population of parents teaches their kids and in what they expect schools to teach. Not all schools have been able to keep up with this demand and therefore, Bully, is created to be a tool for educators. I will repeat—this graphic novel is a tool for educators.
Educators are the experts. They have been pressured to teach our kids academics for many years now and I think the time has come for the pendulum to swing back just a bit. What I mean is, now is the time for educators to also include emotional education in their curriculum’s—which, I believe will increase academic learning.
