The reference experts at The Teacher's Calendar and Chase's Calendar of Events have created this handy new guide for teachers in grades K-12. The Teacher's Calendar of Famous Birthdays offers 365 birthday profiles of key people throughout history--one for each day of the year. From historical icons(Paul Revere) to fine artists (Mary Cassatt) to contemporary world leaders (Nelson Mandela), the profiles detail each subject's historical significance and lasting impact. Whether it's used as a lesson plan supplement, inspiration for biographical reports or simply as a fun way to engage students("Look who was born on your birthday!"), this celebration of famous lives will pique student curiosity. Its page-a-day format is easy-to-use, perfect for browsing, and will help teachers provide students with an unintimidating introduction to the world of research.
