Thursday, September 18, 2008

Today's schedule is B-A-Lunch-D-C.

B- Earth and Space Science 11 - Today we'll spend the first fifteen minutes looking at the rock cycle and taking a diagram down about it. After that we'll head off to the library to begin work on our major project for the year. We will be keeping a photo journal in Earth and Space Science and today you'll get the assignment sheet. The project is due at the end of the semester, but we'll be in the library every week looking up information to help us with our fifteen entries. I'll also introduce your mining project; we'll spend next Thursday and Friday (September 25-6) working in the library on that project. Remember your lab is due today and you have a quiz on Monday.

A - Law 12 - Yesterday we spent most of the class clearing up the Ford v. Attorney General of Quebec (1988) case. We identified what our fundamental freedoms are (section 2 a-d of the Charter) and today we'll build on that. I will go over the B. (R.) v. Children's Aid Society of Metropolitan Toronto (1995) case with you and we'll answer the questions as a class. I will need you to complete questions 1-4 on page 44 in the text and the review of the Keegstra case (R. v. Keegstra, 1990) where you'll be a newspaper reporter writing a respective story on the case after the Supreme Court of Canada made its final decision on the matter.

D - Geography 12 - Today we start with your questions on tectonics and the internal structure/composition of the earth. We'll take some notes down in the week 2 package on core, mantle, and crust and then you'll have to take a diagram down and work on two questions for homework (7 & 8 from page 366 in your Geosystems textbook).

NOTE: Tonight is Meet the Teacher evening here at Vanier. I'll have a separate post for that, however I will not be in attendance for this event (I'm off to Vancouver to present in the faculty of education at the University of British Columbia). If your parents need to get in touch with me remember my e-mail address is on your course outline.
