Wednesday, March 4, 2009

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

Method of Homicide in Canada (2003)
Victim - Suspect relationship (1993 - 2002)

C - Criminology 12 - Today we will continue our look at violent crime. We will finish up our notes on the types of homicide and extent of homicide before our analysis on the differences between mass and serial murder. Today I'd like you to explain the types of serial and mass murderer along with the reasons why they commit these crimes. You can find the answers to this in the work of Jack Levin and James Alan Fox "Multiple Homicide: Patterns of Serial and Mass Murder". The summary of their work is on pages 234 and 235 of the textbook in the Criminological Enterprise section. For more info look at the work of John Douglas (former FBI profiler) on (look in the article section and there is a great read entitled "So, you want to become a profiler...")

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we are going to look at the steps that led to the outbreak of war in 1914. We'll examine how it is that a localized and somewhat regional conflict could consume the entire continent of Europe (along with overseas possessions like Canada). We'll take a few notes (and a diagram) down about the Schlieffen Plan and figure out how that drew Canada into the war.
Look at the OHASSTA website on the plan & its effect on Canada.

B- Social Studies 10 - Today we'll look at the report prepared by Lord Durham along with the Act of Union (1841) and responsible government in 1848. You'll need to read through pages 20-22 in the Challenge of the West text and work on question 14 from page 32. Seeing as though we have people away on a band trip, people at the provincials for skiing and snowboarding, people away on the PARTY program, and people at Wednesday school on Hornby this is all we'll do today.
