Designed as a perfect gift for teachers (there are hundreds of thousands of qualified staff currently teaching at all levels). Grey's Essential Miscellany for Teachers will amuse, entertain and educate in equal measure. Containing trivia to engage even the most world-weary teacher, as well as some actually quite useful information, it will make you laugh out loud and satisfy your curiosity. Entries include: Records; Strange-but-true; Tables; Quotations; Facts; Anecdotes; Some of the more informative entries include: historical comparisons (e.g. the school timetable from Thomas Arnold's Rugby); international comparisons of provision (especially the West vs developing countries); checklists (e.g. to help teachers audit their time or their skills); practical lists (e.g. useful websites, mnemonics); lists of trivia (e.g. old boys, alumni, dyslexics, top role models for school girls).
