					Dear Teacher:

PIGSKIN GEOGRAPHY will be a rewarding addition to your classroom lessons. In the STUDENTS’
QUIZ folder are Student Reference Information sheets(7 pages), the 17 weekly quizzes(31 pages) and
enrichment activity sheets(3 pages). Remember, the quizzes are always worked during the school
week prior to the games on Sunday. We strongly suggest that the first one or two quizzes be worked
as a teacher-directed, whole class activity to give the students an idea of how to answer the quizzes and
informed as to exactly what is expected of them. Be selective. The program can be overwhelming if
every question (309 of them) is assigned. Adapt the program to your curriculum goals and objectives,
time constraints and teaching methods. This program should be instructive and fun.

    Janet Gibson-Fredericksburg, VA, said, “Don‟t let non-geography teachers ignore this. Because of
     the research skills developed with this program, it will help teachers in every subject area pass the
     Standard of Learning tests.”

          SUGGESTIONS for ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES with THE TOPEKA CAPITAL-JOURNAL

        At the beginning of the NFL season, make plans for incorporating the activities into your
curriculum to meet their educational goals and objectives. These suggestions are in no particular
sequence. Item #16 might be one of the first things done.

       A PASSES ATTEMPTED/PASSES COMPLETED GRAPH has been inserted with the answer
sheet for Week #1. Students may keep a colorful bar graph on the number of passes attempted / passes
completed weekly (or could it be weakly) by their favorite NFL or college quarterback. They should
consult the sports section of THE TOPEKA CAPITAL-JOURNAL to obtain this information. The passes
attempted/passes completed figures could be used to practice reducing fractions.

         In the TEACHER’S ANSWER KEY folder (58 pages) are:

    1.   Five themes of Geography. For teachers only.

         STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE ITEMS 2-6A AVAILABLE FOR THEIR REFERENCE AT ALL
         TIMES.

    2.   Student Study Hint Sheet. The bible! A must for every student to have as a constant companion.
         Half the answers are here.

    3.   Two-letter state abbreviations with nicknames to be used when students have to identify states a
         team will fly across en route to a game.

    4.   Time Zone Map is a must for every student to have.

    5.   Population Information revised 2007 from THE WORLD ALMANAC.
6A.   Seating capacity of stadia in the NFL for 2007.

6B.   Math with the Stadium Capacity(2007). Several suggestions are made for using this table in
      conjunction with the attendance figures provided in the boxscores of The Topeka Capital-Journal
      to create subtraction, percentage or rounding-off exercises. Suggestions are given for graphing
      the attendance figures as well as working with prime and composite numbers from the game
      scores.

6C.   Attendance bar graph. Round-off the attendance of your favorite team to the nearest five
      hundred(500) and construct a vertical bar graph for the 16 weeks “your team” plays. Color the
      bars brightly in the team color of the opposition.

 7.   NFL City Location Map

 8.   Suggestions for weekly enrichment activities with the THE TOPEKA CAPITAL-JOURNAL.

9A.   Addition-Subtraction, Graphing Instructions for each teacher. Encourage this. It makes them use
      The Topeka Capital-Journal for simple math every Monday.

9B.   Addition and Subtraction Exercise Sheet. Teachers to duplicate by the hundreds.

9C.   Time and Accuracy graph. Students love doing this graph, and what a great PR tool it is for the
      school and you at the newspaper. After a few weeks, some students will want to re-make their
      graphs so they will be more spiffy. Parents will be aware of the pride in this project, and teachers
      will hear about it.

      The bars are colored green if the addition and subtraction exercise is done with 100% accuracy.
      The bars are red if a mistake(s) is made. Tell the teachers to expect a gradual stair-step pattern
      descending to the right as the season progresses, and hopefully there will be more green bars
      with the passing weeks.

10.   NFL schedule for 2007 is enclosed.

      Thanking you in advance for your participation, and let me know if there is anything else I can do
      to make this a successful program for you.

                                                                   Respectfully,



                                                                   Alfred J. Wilson

Dear The Topeka Capital-Journal NIE Teacher:

PIGSKIN GEOGRAPHY will be a rewarding addition to your NIE program. Remember, the quizzes are
always worked during the school week prior to the games on Sunday. It is suggested that the first
one or two quizzes be worked as a teacher directed, whole class practice activity to give the students an
idea of how to answer the quizzes and informed as to exactly what is expected of them.

In addition to the quizzes and answer keys, the supplemental materials included are:

 1.    Five Themes of Geography. A suggestion is to divide a bulletin board into five sections with each
       section being titled with one of the five themes. Have the students clip articles from The Topeka
       Capital-Journal that serve as an example of each theme to display in the appropriate section of
       the bulletin board.

 2.    Student Study Hint Sheet. The bible! A must for every student to have as a constant companion.
       Many answers are here.

 3.    Two-letter state abbreviations with nicknames to be used when students have to identify states a
       team will fly across en route to a game.

 4.    Time Zone Map

 5.    Population information revised 2007 from THE WORLD ALMANAC.

 6.    Seating capacity of stadia in the NFL and a graphing suggestion.
       Note: Items 2-6 should be a student‟s constant companion for reference.

 7.    NFL city location map

 8.    Suggestions for weekly enrichment activities with the THE TOPEKA CAPITAL-JOURNAL.

 9.    Addition-Subtraction, Graphing Activity. Improve computational and graphing skills. Students will
       have fun at the same time. Parents will enjoy hearing about this.

       Please let me help with your PIGSKIN GEOGRAPHY program this fall in any way I can. The
       THE TOPEKA CAPITAL-JOURNAL wants this program to be an educational success for you
       and your school.
