Graphic novel on bullying and discrimination

The excellent STEP website has launched a graphic novel Shifting for schools which tells the story of Joe and Tillie and describes their experiences of bullying behaviour in several different schools.  The graphic novel will be distributed free to schools throughout Scotland with the aim of generating dialogue about discriminatory behaviour, recognising difference and taking positive action. A range of activities accompany the resource exploring the various themes arising in the story.  It has been written and illustrated by Metaphrog, a graphic novel duo.
