Friday, May 8, 2009


You too could win this Sweet Kona Fire Mountain bike. It will be in the office window all week long and you can drool over it there. All you need to do is ride your bike to school next week and register each day at the front entrance.

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

C - Criminology 12 - Today we will start our look at violent crime. We will focus on the roots of violent crime today. Where does violence come from (personal traits, ineffective families, evolutionary factors, exposure to violence, cultural values, substance abuse, and firearm availability)? After we'll start watching the Law& Order: Special Victim's Unit episode "Closure". This episode deals with the short and long-term effects of a sexual assault on a victim. From "Benson does her best to help a rape victim who is able to describe her attack in perfect detail, yet unable to properly identify her attacker when push comes to shove. When the detectives revisit the case a few months later, they find the woman even less willing to talk about what happened, as she claims she has moved on." I want you to think about this episode for Monday's class when you'll write a blog entry on violence.

A - Social Studies 11 - Today with Mr. Lux you will have a WWII unit test. The test will cover the material of the Interwar Years, the rise of Fascism & Nazism, and the various campaigns which took place within the European and Pacific Theatres. The format of the test will be a very similar format to what students will see on the BC Provincial Exam in that it will be a combination of multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer. Good Luck!

B- Social Studies 10 - Today the class will review the content covered from the unit on Louis Riel, Conflict Resolution, Cariboo & Klondike Gold Rushes, B.C. becoming a colony and how it eventually entered Confederation, PEI into Confederation, and finally how Newfoundland entered Confederation. The review class will not only cover all of the important aspects of these main topics, but there will also be a test "checklist" which you will take with you at the end of class so that you will have a resource to help you prepare. The test will be during Monday's class and it will be "open-book."

Pau Hana!

Don't forget to be nice to your mother and wish her a Hau`oli Lā Mākuahine (Happy Mother's Day)
