Tuesday, March 3 2009

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

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we start by reviewing the work from Friday's class. On Friday we examined the economic causes of the first world war focusing on imperialism and militarism. We looked at the British naval escalation (HMS Dreadnought) and the massive arms development in Germany. Today we focus on the system of alliances (Triple Alliance / Triple Entente) and nationalism (Serbian "Black Hand" and Austria-Hungary control over the Balkans). Lastly we will look at Gavrillo Princip and the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sofia. Tomorrow we will examine the domino effect that led to war and Canada's response.

B- Social Studies 10 - Today we'll start with reviewing the rebellion of Lower Canada in 1837-1838. We'll talk about the 92 Resolutions proposed by Louis Joseph Papineau and the British response. We'll talk about Ste. Denis, Ste. Charles, and Ste. Eustache. We will learn the story of Dr. Olivier Chernier and see how the British treatment of him resonated for over 140 years in Quebec (all the way up to the FLQ in 1970). You will have the opportunity to finish up work from yesterday's class (q's 5 from p.30 and 9 from p.31) and we'll finish the Canada: A People's History DVD episodes.

C - Criminology 12 - Today we are going to finish the Criminal Minds episode from Friday's class. You'll need to remember the profile of the murderer for tomorrow's class! We'll take some time to review the roots of violence and then we'll discuss murder and homicide. We'll discuss the divisions of murder in Canada (1st and 2nd degree and manslaughter), the extent of murder in Canada, and murderous relations (acquaintance and stranger homicide). Tomorrow we'll discuss mass and serial murder (focusing on Fox & Levin's study "Multiple Homicide: Patterns of Serial and Mass Murder"), Thursday we'll review assault and sexual assault, and Friday we'll discuss robbery, criminal harassment, hate crimes and terrorism.
