Father's Day

Great Sites Center

The Education World Great Sites for Teaching About ... pages highlight Web sites to help educators work timely themes into their lessons. Father's Day is just around the corner, and these sites are among the best on the Web for integrating ideas about what fatherhood means into your curriculum.


Fathering Magazine
This electronic monthly periodical offers timely articles and rich themes designed to help fathers offer everything they can to their families. Topics explored include The Joy of Fathering and the Importance of Fathers. The Fathers and Sons and Fathers and Daughters features are especially touching and worthwhile. Be sure to screen this site before using it; some topics are more personal than others.

The Father's Network
The mission of the Father's Network "is to celebrate and support fathers and families raising children with special health care needs and developmental disabilities." The site offers news and articles, information about care providers, a special photo album, a message board, and resources for additional support in helping fathers in this important work. The site is also available in Español.

National Center for Fathering
This leading support group offers news, tips, and humor for dads. Visitors will find research, training links, and a store that includes specials for Father's Day. There's a chat interface for dads who like some spontaneous interaction and a message board too. The Hall of Fame is a great way for kids to honor their dads this Father's Day.
