Wednesday, May 6, 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 C-D-Lunch-B-A

C - Criminology 12 - Today we will take the whole block to work on our victims and victimology work that we started yesterday. Remember you need to read through the next section in Chapter 3 on "Theories of Victimization" (dealing with Victim Precipitation, Lifestyle, and Routine Activities) - pages 61-64. Your work will be to explain and compare the three theories (as a paragraph) and answer questions 2 & 3 on page 72 in the Criminology: The Core text. To bridge the topics of violent crime and victimization I'll have you create a poster showing a typical victim of a violent crime. You will need to choose a type of violent crime (homicide, assault, sexual assault, criminal harassment - stalking, hate crimes, kidnapping) and identify the personal characteristics, behaviours, and traits of the most likely victim of that crime (consider age, gender, social status, relationship status, race or ethnicity, prior victimization, behaviour, location, culture, etc...). You'll need to explain & draw the victim and then describe the theory of victimization that explains why they would fall prey to that crime.

B- Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Lux you'll start with current events. The next part of the class will be used for a slide show presentation on B.C.'s first explorers and Vancouver Island becoming a colony. This slide show nicely compliments the worksheet from last day on "B.C. Into Confederation". After the slide show you will have some class time to work on the rest of your worksheets. The last part of class will be the U-Shaped debate on the resolution: "Be it resolved that B.C. would have been better off if it would have never joined Canada in Confederation." Each student will be required to share their point of view and provide at least three facts to support their "stance".

A - Social Studies 11 - Today with Mr. Lux you'll start with current events and then shift into a slide show presentation on "WWII Interesting Facts". Mr. Lux. will talk about terms and facts such as: How "Operation Sea Lion" got it's name; "carpet bombing"; "Merchant Marines"; "Scorched Earth Policy"; significance of "Ortona"; and, cause & effects such as what made U.S.S.R. an Allied nation, and how the Hong Kong campaign affected Japanese Canadians at home in Canada. You will then have some time to work on your worksheets. The remainder of class time will be used for the U-Shaped debate on the two separate resolutions: "Be it resolved that wars can be avoided"; and, "Be it resolved that WWII could have been avoided." Each student will be required to share their point of view on at least one of the resolutions, and provide at least three facts to support their "stance".
