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

From Mr. Lux:

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we will be looking at the process of a bill becoming a law. In class we'll look at the debate surrounding a law and practice the procedures together.

B- Social Studies 10 - Today the last two presentations will cover the Interior Plains and the Cordillera regions of Canada. These two presentations will take the block and then Mr. Lux will let you know about the quiz for tomorrow's class.

C - Criminology 12 - Today for the first part of the class I'll have you work on your letter to the editor from the last few days. I will be asking you to post it to your blog rather than giving me a hard copy of it. The letter is due Monday. For the last part of the class we'll discuss victims of crime and victimology. We'll look at the Holly Jones murder case in Toronto (2003) and try to find out what impact that would have on her family, her classmates at school, her neighbourhood, and really the entire greater Toronto metropolitan area. We'll have a few notes to take down on the problems of being crime victims (economic loss, system abuse, long term stress, fear, and antisocial behaviour). Tomorrow we'll finish that up and watch a powerful Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit episode (more to come).
