Friday, February 13, 2009

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

From Mr. Lux:

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we will be looking at the three branches (executive, judicial, legislative) of government in more detail; specifically, the House of Commons, the caucus, the Senate, and the Cabinet. We will also look at why there are federal, provincial, and municipal governments. We will also introduce the main political parties of Canada (i.e. Conservatives, Liberals, NDP, Green, Bloc Quebecois, and Independents).

B- Social Studies 10 - Soc. 10 has been assigned the task of forming groups to research the various physiographic regions of Canada. Friday’s class will be started in Room 611 to talk about a few key guidelines, then the lesson will be moved to the library to research the specific content required for the “major areas”.

C - Criminology 12 - Today we'll review the work from Chapter one on the purpose of law and what crimes are. I'll ask you about the news broadcasts that you watched last night (top stories and if they were crime related or not) and ask you whether that influences fear about crime or not. We'll then switch and look at the three methods for collecting crime data (UCR, PRVS, Self-Reports). This weekend I'd like you to watch the news again and see how much of the news stories are crime related.

Pau Hana!
