About the Book

A year's worth of ideas and activities at your fingertips

""Lots of useful information at your fingertips! Thorough, well researched--with great links and connections.""--Jill Bergee, Missouri Teacher of the Year, 2002

""What a great way to start the day and engage students right out of the chute! The diversity of topics covered and the user-friendly language guarantee that we won't grow tired of using The Teacher's Calendar. And the almanac-type section at the end of the book is a great one-stop resource.""--Tim Bailey, Utah Teacher of the Year, 2002

""What a great resource! It's added some fun ideas to my curriculum. This is a great document for helping to take advantage of that teachable moment!""--Deborah White, Oregon Teacher of the Year, 2002

""I was captivated and entranced! I see this as an absolutely necessary tool no matter what your subject area or grade level. There is such an assortment of topics that every class, student, and teacher can find a multitude of events to correlate with not only typical interests but also the obscure and sublime. The information contained in the index alone is worth the price of this book!""-- Alexis Ludewig, Wisconsin Teacher of the Year, 2002

""This is a fabulous resource for teachers who go beyond the required curriculum. The Teacher's Calendar provides connections to historical and current events, technology and society--all in a format that's quick and easy to use. Although it connects logically to the calendar, I plan by thematic units. I loved the index! It provided the links and information that will help me make better plans about when to teach my units.""--Jeanne Gren, West Virginia Teacher of the Year, 2002

""I work with gifted and high-achieving fourth and fifth graders, and they actually use the annual Teacher's Calendars more than I do! I leave it out with our reference materials for them to peruse when they are done with class assignments--I even leave out the Calendars from previous years, since the information is different from year to year. The kids especially like the internet links to find special facts about a given day of the year."" --Tracy Callard, Kansas Teacher of the Year, 2002

""This book is phenomenal! As a primary teacher I struggle to find appropriate material to nudge my students' understanding of the passing of time, history, and geography. This resource is the perfect springboard to help me tackle these tough concepts. It increases the rigor in my classroom.""--Barb Stoflet, Minnesota Teacher of the Year, 2002

""A wonderful resource to supplement our required curriculum!""--Melinda Day Webster, Tennessee Teacher of the Year, 2002
