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

D- Law 12
- Today we'll take a couple of minutes to review the elements of a crime, types of crime, parties to an offence, conspiracy, and attempts. The activity for the class today is to take a look at six cases in the text and find out the Actus Reus & Mens Rea of the crime. You'll need to identify three things:
  1. Identify the Criminal Code section & briefly explain the crime
  2. Identify the Actus Reus & Mens Rea required for the commission of the offence
  3. Identify any evidence that you can find in the cases to prove or to support both Actus Reus and Mens Rea
The cases I need you to look at are: R. v. Thornton (page 70), R. v. Sansregret (page 72), R. v. Cribben (page 75), R. v. Goodine (page 76), R. v. Mills (page 84), R. v. Jackson (page 84)

A - Social Studies 11
- Today we are going to finish the Laurier Era work we started this week. We'll understand the differences between primary and secondary sources in historical research and I'll have you practice that by working on questions 1-7 on page 18-19 in the Counterpoints textbook (Building Your Skills: Analyzing primary and secondary sources). For more information to help on "The Last Best West" see the Canadian Museum of Civilization on line exhibit. For more on primary documents see the Ontario History Quest.

Tomorrow we are turning our focus to the underlying causes of the First World War.

B- Geography 12 - Today we're off to the library to begin our first day of research on the Orting high school case study. Should the town of Orting, Washington, build a new high school to attract people to their community or not? What will the impact of increased population be on the tiny town that sits in the shadows of Mt. Rainier? The assignment is in your week 5 package and was adapted from the following website:
