Wednesday, February 25, 2009

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

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we start looking at the Laurier Era in Canadian history. I want you to think about what life was like, here in the Comox Valley, 100 years ago in 1909. How big was the community? Where did people live? What did people do? What were manners like? What were the values of society? Look at the Courtenay and District Museum and Archives to see pictures.

After this discussion I'll have you look through pages 9-12 in the Counterpoints textbook and work on questions 1-4 on page 13 (due tomorrow).

B- Social Studies 10 - Today we'll start with reviewing the four main causes of discontent in Upper Canada that we looked at yesterday. You'll need to work on questions 2 & 6 from page 30 in the text and I'll have you take down a modified version of the chart on page 8 in your notes. For homework tonight you'll need to read through pages 12-14 in the text. Tomorrow in class you'll create an election poster for the Upper Canada election of 1832 (Tories, Reformers, or Radical Reformers).

C - Criminology 12 - Today I'll review yesterday's work on the three theories of victimization and the two questions from the end of the chapter. To bridge the topics of violent crime and victimization I'll have you create a poster showing a typical victim of a violent crime. You will need to choose a type of violent crime (homicide, assault, sexual assault, criminal harassment - stalking, hate crimes, kidnapping) and identify the personal characteristics, behaviours, and traits of the most likely victim of that crime (consider age, gender, social status, relationship status, race or ethnicity, prior victimization, behaviour, location, culture, etc...). You'll need to explain & draw the victim and then describe the theory of victimization that explains why they would fall prey to that crime.
