By Caleb Pirtle III. Alexander Pope could take pomposity to levels that had never been reached before and have seldom been reached since. His essays were little more than a matted morass of verbosity, which is about as pompous as I can get. When we were struggling through his tantalizing little couplets in high school, I had an English teacher who told us that reading Alexander Pope was like being a prospector. “You have to dig through acres and acres of mud to find a single nugget,” she said.

Socrates.. Socrates was born in 470 BC, in Athens, Greece. We know of his life through the writings of his students, including Plato and Xenophon. His "Socratic method," laid the groundwork for Western systems of logic and philosophy. When the political climate of Greece turned, Socrates was sentenced to death by hemlock poisoning in 399 BC. He accepted this judgment rather than fleeing.
Great Teachers: Socrates is considered one of Western Civilization's most significant teachers and philosophers. Do you ever use the Socratic method in your classroom?
