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

C - Criminology 12 - Today you have the entire block to continue work on your major project for the course. I will remind you that tomorrow is the last day of classes for Criminology 12 in Term 3 and your assignment is due on the last day. Don't forget to look at yesterday's blog entry to see web links for theory explanations. Good Luck!

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we will continue our look at the 1930's in Canada, focusing on the political parties that emerged in reaction to the harsh economic and political climate of the time. We will look at the Union Nationale (Maurice Duplessis), the Social Credit Party (William "Bible Bill" Aberhart) and the Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation (J.S. Woodsworth). We'll even talk about the Canadian Nationalist Party (Joseph Farr) and the National Social Christian Party (Adrien Arcand) which were both unabashedly fascist (Arcand eventually became the leader of the National Unity Party. We will take some time to watch Canada: A People's History (The Enemies Within, Dear Mr. Prime Minister, A Clean Sweep, and The Politics of Hope). Lastly you'll need to work on questions 1 & 2 on page 89. Tomorrow we'll look at equalization payments, the Rowell-Sirois commission and begin our look at the rise of dictators in the 20's & 30's.

B- Social Studies 10 - Now that you have condensed information about the Aboriginal Peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, the Plains, the Plateau/Interior, and the Sub-Arctic you need to create your own set of notes from the posters that you created in groups. You will receive a mark for this assignment as well as for your posters. This should take the bulk of the class today. If there is time remaining we will discuss first contact between European fur traders and the Aboriginal Peoples of the prairies (questions 2 & 4 from page 99 of the text).
