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

B- Social Studies 10 - Today we are going to take a look at the characters involved in the Upper Canada rebellion of 1837. Newspaper editor William Lyon Mackenzie (the paper was called The Colonial Advocate) was a fiery reformer and was five times elected to parliament by the citizens of the colony. He was considered as a serious agitator by the Family Compact and at the time he led the rebellion he was mayor of Toronto. Robert Baldwin was a reformer who was also wealthy, well educated, and a member of the Anglican Church. He wished for the governor to do what the elected assembly advised him to do (known as a "responsible government"). Sir Francis Bond Head was the newly appointed governor of Upper Canada in 1836. He accused the Reformers and Radical Reformers of wanting a Republican style of government (like that in the U.S.A.) and being traitors to King William IV and Great Britain.

You'll need to define Tory, Reformer, Radical Reformer and work on questions 3 & 4 (p.30) and 10 & 11 (p.31). Monday your campaign poster is due.

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we'll wrap up the Laurier Era and look at the skills activity we started yesterday on analyzing primary and secondary sources of historical information. We are then turning our focus to the underlying causes of the First World War. We'll look at Imperialism and militarism as causes for the first world war today.

C - Criminology 12 - Today we'll finish the Warner Brothers cartoon analysis from yesterday's class.We'll then complete our discussion of violence and then I'll show you an episode of Criminal Minds ("Fear and Loathing" from season 2). From the episode

The suspect we are looking for is a black male; statistically he is between the ages of 20 and 35. The team gives the profile of the unsub to the local police. Sexually motivated killers almost always kill within their own race. He is a smooth talker, intelligent, and gains their confidence.

Pau Hana Ohana!
