Message form the Publisher, Maurice Fisher - This book reinforces the idea that students must learn about the great ideas of western civilization in order to be significant contributors to our society. Mr Butchart is a scholar of the humanities and a highly experienced teacher. I enthusiastically recommend this book to every teacher of gifted students who wants to impart crucial knowledge about the great thinkers and doers of the ages. Your students will like using Mr. Butchart's book in a stimulating, humanities and quotations-based curriculum. This approach to teaching the gifted represents the sine qua non of differentiated instruction!

About the Author - In 2001, Ross Butchart retired following a thirty-four year career as a teacher and administrator in the Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) elementary and middle school systems. That fall he changed direction and became an instructor in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia where he taught courses in Communication, Principles of Teaching, and monitored teachers-in-training during their two-year professional program. When budget restrictions closed down his cohort in 2007, Ross Butchart entered full retirement concluding a forty year career in education. In 2009, he was a contributing author to the book, Heroes of Giftedness (Gifted Education Press, Publisher).
