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

B- Social Studies 10 - Today you have your Rebellions editorial to hand in and you have your rebellions unit final. The unit final will take about 40-45 minutes of the class and if you reviewed your work, I'm sure that you will do well. When we're done we will begin looking at the six factors that led to Confederation in 1867. Today we'll discuss the Civil War in the US, Manifest Destiny, and the Alaska Purchase of 1867. Take a look at:
PBS Ken Burns' The Civil War
John L. O'Sullivan on Manifest Destiny in 1839
Manifest Destiny
US-Mexican War Manifest Destiny
Alaska Purchase

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we'll take a look at the effects of the war on the "Home Front" and examine the war on sea and Canada's role (merchant marine). We'll spend more time looking at the Suffragette movement and then we'll see the effects of 1917 (Russian Revolution & US entry into the war and the Halifax Explosion). The last thing we'll do is take a look at the fall of the Central Powers in 1918 and armistice. Tomorrow and Friday you'll work on the Paris Peace Conferences and the effects of the Treaty of Versailles.

C - Criminology 12 - Today we'll discuss the history of theft and make sense of the differences between occasional and professional thieves. We'll turn our focus to shoplifting and examine the Winona Ryder case. You'll need to answer the following:
  1. What are the differences between a professional and an occasional thief?
  2. What is a "situational inducement"?
  3. What is a "Booster", a "Heel", a "Snitch", a "Fence"?
  4. Why do you think Winona Ryder shoplifted (motive)?
  5. Do you think the penalties given to her were appropriate (3 years probation, 4000 hours of community service, $9000 fine, and drug & psychiatric counseling)? Why or why not
Lastly we'll focus on auto theft and you'll need to explain the five types of motor vehicle theft. Tomorrow you'll be working on a poster to control shoplifting and then we'll look at burglary & Break and Enter. Friday we'll look at arson and watch a Criminal Minds episode on the topic.
