seems like a joke in high school, you'll thank him once you get to university if you take history or any writing-related courses

i've now graduated university, and can safely say mr. butler was one of the best teachers i've had in my academic career. one of the few I've met who shows a genuine interest in both the subject that he's teaching, and the students that he's teaching it to.

Funny teacher, he gives everyone nicknames! very knowledgable (he wrote the grade 12 textbook) and he makes you look at the bigger picture. Really helps you with assignments. definitely a fun class to be in, assuming you're interested in history.

Mr Butler is absolutely amazing. Pay attention in his class, and you learn not only what happened, but how to analyze it, and you also learn interesting new words such as "flim."

Mr.B was such a good teacher! Hilarious, intelligent and caring. Class was always interesting. I learnt more "how" and "why" than the usual "when" and "where" in history classes. "Incidentally, Pilates actaully discovered the exercise of pilates." "Really?" ...... "No."

Really annoying, arrogant and yet very interesting and enjoyable class. Teaches how to learn better than he teaches history. For isu's, write about anything, especially something obscure or about women, have a lot of good sources, and you'll do well.

Butler's courses are probably the most worthy ones to take, and u will certainly benefit from his lectures. However he marked toughly and all of his assignments are essays (even tests are a single essay question)!

Butler is great. Its been rumored that he occasionally makes up a lesson, I believe this to be true. Still his pet names and lessons that go off in random tangents are great.

Definatley one of the most random and useless teachers in the school, you are better off reading the textbook than going to class.

Brilliant teacher. All tests essay-format. Cool guy, but don't miss assignment dates. Also, you CAN eat in his class, so long as you don't get caught doing it.
