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

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we'll be focusing on Quebec "nationalism" and the roots of the separatist movement (Chapter 8 - pages 190-197 in the Counterpoints textbook). You will need to work on questions 1, 2, 4, & 5 from page 194 along with question 5 from page 197. If there's time you may work on the questions from yesterday. You'll also get a chance to watch four episodes of Canada: A People's History as well. There are many many websites and on-line stories dedicated to separatism here are two that may help:

Global Security - Quebec Separatism

CBC Archives - Levesque & Separatism

B- Social Studies 10 - Today we will spend the class working on our children's book about the building of the CPR. Don't forget, here are some websites that can help you:
Canadian Pacific Railway Archives
The Canadian Encyclopedia - Building the Railway
The Kids site of Canadian Settlement - Chinese & the Railway
Vancouver Public Library - CPR History
BC Archives - CPR
Kamloops Art Gallery - Andrew Onderdonk & the CPR

C - Criminology 12 - Today we'll discuss the history of theft and make sense of the differences between occasional and professional thieves. We'll turn our focus to shoplifting and examine the Winona Ryder case. You'll need to answer the following:
  1. What are the differences between a professional and an occasional thief?
  2. What is a "situational inducement"?
  3. What is a "Booster", a "Heel", a "Snitch", a "Fence"?
  4. Why do you think Winona Ryder shoplifted (motive)?
  5. Do you think the penalties given to her were appropriate (3 years probation, 4000 hours of community service, $9000 fine, and drug & psychiatric counseling)? Why or why not
Lastly we'll focus on auto theft and you'll need to explain the five types of motor vehicle theft. Tomorrow you'll be working on a poster to control shoplifting and then we'll look at burglary & Break and Enter. Friday we'll look at arson and watch a Criminal Minds episode on the topic.
