Friday, November 14, 2008

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

C - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we are going to talk about the victims of crime. Crime Victimization is a huge area of study in Criminology and we'll try to make sense of some victim statistics. I hope you brought your coloured pencils today as you will be drawing what you think the typical victim of an assault looks like. You will need to keep in mind the demographic statistics about victims and the factors that add to the risks of being a victim. This will be due on Monday and you will also have a quiz on Monday. The quiz will be on the first four pages of your notebook (the topics we covered in Law 9/10 this week).

D - Geography 12 - Today we will look at the composition and vertical structure of the atmosphere. You'll need to complete the Atmosphere in the Vertical activity and question 7 from page 90 in your Geosystems text. Don't forget that each day we start with reading weather maps and analyzing satellite imagery of weather. Take some time on the following sites to learn more and to practise your weather operational analysis capabilities:
WW2010 - University of Illinois Weather site
National Weather Service "Jet Stream" online weather school
American Meteorological Society "Data Streme"
British Broadcasting Corporation Reading Weather Maps
USA Today Reading Weather Maps

Practise at:
Weather Office (Environment Canada) Operational Analysis Charts
or at the Data Streme site above.

B- Earth and Space Science 11 - Today we are in the library to continue work on our major project. Come to class first (because there is a junior advisory class for the first 15 minutes of class) You will need to hand in your weathering and soil questions from yesterday. We'll briefly look at Mass Wasting focusing on slides, flows, and falls and you'll complete questions 13, 14, 15, and 19 for homework this weekend.

A - Law 12
- Today we move into criminal law procedures and will focus on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. You will work on the R. v. Macooh (1993) case, questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 on page 91 and questions 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 on page 97 of your All About Law text.
