I am a Special Education schoolteacher.

I was wondering if there are books out there that connect magic tricks to teaching ideas in Math, English, History, Social Studies, etc. Does anyone know of anything in this area?

You could probably abstract the teaching ideas from books on gospel magic.

There is a decent book out there called "Magic and Showmanship for Teachers" by Alan J McCormack. One of my professors in college picked one up for me at a teachers' convention several years ago, so I'm not sure about its availability, but it has some pretty good ideas in it for most of the core subject areas.

Martin Gardner has an excellent book on Math and Magic (forget the exact title) put out by Dover. It may be out of print but is easily available at used book stores or the net.
