Q: Recommendation for graphic novels for teaching in Shenzhen?

I'm going to be teaching and I was wondering if graphic novels would have any measure of success with the kids, and whether or not it's possible to find some in Shenzhen. And if so, where?

Some of the graphic novels that are the most popular are the one's made by the scholastic company. I've got several myself and I think they could be a good way to teach kids. Most kids won't be too interested in a book unless it has pictures or if you can paint a mental picture in their mind about what you are talking about. 

Also, after you finish the book and you show all the kids the pictures make sure you keep something in your pocket that can relate to something in the book. Like a lost key or a lost toy etc., and at the end ask the kids where did it go? Then take it out of your pocket and they will think that what you were talking about in the book actually came out in real life.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
