Monday, May 4, 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 your journal / blog entry is to write out your immediate impressions on the short and long term effects on Dr. Spencer Reid being a victim of crime (kidnapping & assault) from the Criminal Minds episode we watched last Friday. You should use information on victimology from Chapter 3 pages 54-7 in Criminology: The Core. Next, I'd like you to find an article (news story) about a victim of crime and for that you should outline the impacts of the crime on them. Finally, using the two stories (one fictional and one real) explain what we should do to mitigate (soften the impact) the impacts of crime on victims (be realistic). Don't forget to post your letter to the editor of the Vancouver Sun outlining the current trends in crime and crime patterns.

A - Social Studies 11 - Today, after current events, you'll finish watching "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas." The remainder of the class time will be used for a writing assignment. You will be required to write a fictitious journal entry of what it would like being Bruno, Shmul, Pavel, and Bruno's Mother.

B- Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Lux you will begin the class with current events. Next, you'll work through your "Peer Evaluation" session on the historical posters that you created last week. You will be required to evaluate three of your peer's posters using the rubrics distributed at the end of last class. This activity will be complete within the first half of class, and for the remainder of class time you will be working on creating a historical time line of the major events which took place in western Canada during the 1800s.
