Iroquois Ridge High School, Ottawa (Ontario)

Nick Brune has written history textbooks, videos, teaching packages and articles. He has given workshops and presentations throughout Canada. He has been the educational writer for the award–winning CBC–TV News in Review that reaches over two million students across Canada. His passion for the discipline and study of history is both evident and contagious. The integrity of history, he believes, demands that students discover not only what happened and why, but its importance and how it speaks to their own lives.
