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

B- Social Studies 10 - Today we will continue our look at the causes of Canadian confederation by focusing on and taking some notes about economic problems and transportation. We'll make sense of Canada losing preferential status through the abolition of the Corn Laws in 1846 and our Reciprocity Treaty of 1854 with the United States. We'll look at the development of the Grand Trunk Railway and the need for railways in Canada (think trade and defense). You'll have a worksheet to complete in Class today.

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we'll take a look at the effects of the war on Canada in 1919. We'll analyze the differences between Canada at the outset of war and Canada at the end of the war in terms of politics, social values, and economics. We'll try to see both the negative and positive impacts on our society and then we'll use page 44 of the text to discuss this topic in detail. I'll give you a quick review for tomorrow's unit final and then we'll briefly preview the 1920's and 1930's unit.

C - Criminology 12 - Today you have your property crime quiz. After the quiz we move into our white-collar (enterprise) and organized crime unit. We will see the similarities between the two types of crime and you'll be introduced to Edwin H. Sutherland's Differential Association Theory (he introduced the concept "white collar crime"). We'll take a few notes and see what we can find on the Internet about white collar crime....spoil alert LOTS!
