Now, more than ever, educators are looking for resources to assist in having critical conversations and helping students build positive habits. As such, access to quality health and wellness content has never been more important.

Discovery Education and its global corporate and community partners have joined forces to build health and wellness resources dedicated to supporting educators, students, and families through equitable access to meaningful learning tools. Health and wellness are essential to identity, development, how we relate to one another, and how we experience the world around us. Watch as we explore this catalog of no-cost tools and discuss best practices for implementation in the classroom.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and school leaders.

Michael TylerSince 2003, Michael Tyler’s been putting pen to paper, authoring Water for the Soul: A Father’s Hope for His Son, a collection of life lessons, and Sow the Seeds: A Composition in Verse, a poetry journal. But in 2005, when one day his son came home from elementary school and shared that he’d been called a racially disparaging name by a classmate on the playground, Tyler began thinking differently about his writing. He knew he wanted to talk with his son about what happened, so he looked to children’s books to help him approach this challenging conversation in a way his 5-year-old could grasp. So, Tyler started reading…

After two weeks and 347 children’s books later, Tyler concluded that the book he needed to help explain to his son race and racism didn’t yet exist, so instead he’d need to write it. That’s how Tyler’s first children’s book, The Skin You Live In, was born.

As an African American man and father to biracial children, Tyler is acutely aware of the world’s “-isms.” To combat racism, sexism and more, he writes affirming, empowering stories to engender self-worth in kids. Through verse and rhyme, Tyler transforms meaty topics and difficult concepts, including race, acceptance and equity, into language kids can both understand and enjoy. He is passionate about arming parents and educators with the resources and tools (including social and emotional learning curriculum around two of his titles) they need to start tough dialogues with their kids and students.

When he’s not writing, hosting a virtual reading hour or participating in programming around his books, Tyler gets satisfaction through cooking for others. One of his favorite ways to give and receive love is watching someone’s eyes light up after taking their first bite of his butter cake. Tyler resides in Chicago with his wife, Alicia.
