Monday, May 11, 2009

Ride your bike to school this week and register each day at the front entrance. Each day you ride & register you get an entry for a draw to win this Sweet Kona Fire Mountain bike. It will be in the office window all week long and you can drool over it there.

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

B - Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Lux you'll have your unit test covering materials such as Louis Riel's Resistances & Rebellions, Conflict Resolution, Klondike & Cariboo Gold Rushes, BC, PEI, and Newfoundland into Confederation. If there is time left in class we will run through our daily current events, and if there is still time left we will introduce the CPR. This will be the last day that assignments will be allowed to be submitted for marks.

A - Social Studies 11 - Today with Mr. Lux you'll start with current events and then you'll Review the answers to the WWII unit test written last class. This will be followed by introducing The Cold War and learning how this is the aftermath of the U.S.S.R. being an Allied nation during WWII. We will see how a nation which was considered to be a friend can become the "enemy" in such a short period of time. We will also look at how the UN formed right after the end of WWII and what the purpose of this was. This will be the last day that assignments will be allowed to be submitted for marks.

C - Criminology 12 - Today Mrs. Whyte, the school teacher-librarianh, will be in the class to show you some ways to find articles for your blog site work (EBSCO databases) and to talk about checking source material (to ensure validity). After, we are back in the library working on our next journal/blog entry. You need to create your own "Theory of Violent Behaviour" (your own views on where violent behaviour comes from) and post it on the blog. Find one story from BC or Canada about a violent crime and try to apply your theory to explain why the crime took place. Tomorrow we'll have the victimology quiz that we missed last Tuesday and then we'll continue our look at violent crime focusing on homicide.
