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

C - Criminology 12 - Today is day two of your poster project assignment. Don't forget in this project you will need to create a poster that provides an overview of the different theories of crime causation. You will need to explain the basics of the theory (why do people commit crime according to...), identify the main/important people involved with the theory, and elaborate on how the theory explains crime prevention (see yesterday's post). If you need sources other than your text look at the following sites at home:
Criminology Theory Summaries pdf file (including a sweet glossary)
Methodist College Department of Justice Studies
Florida State University Criminal Justice Links
Dr. Cecil E. Greek FSU CCJ 5606 Criminological Theory Class (check out lecture notes)
Your Criminology: The Core text book has a student companion site here

B - Social Studies 10 - Today we'll continue our look at the economy of British Columbia. We'll spend the class in the library today in order to work on your economic sectors of BC poster activity that you got yesterday. Here are a few websites that can help you with the tourism sector in BC:
Go2 Tourism HR
Tourism BC
BC Stats - Tourism Industry - Tourism

A - Social Studies 11 - Today you will start with the questions on development that we did not get to yesterday (question 2 from page 409 and 5 from page 418 of your Counterpoints textbook). We'll then turn our attention to the ethics associated with resource use and we'll watch the first three sections of the National Geographic DVD "Human Footprint". In the documentary, National Geographic calculated all the energy, resources and products used by each American over an average lifetime. Since we, in Canada, live a similar lifestyle to the United States the video gives you a really good view of consumption and its effects.
For more information see the National Geographic Preserve Our Planet website.
