Tuesday, October 20, 2009

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

A - Social Studies 11 - Today we'll take a look at the effects of the war on the "Home Front" and examine how the government conscripted wealth (paid) for the war (income tax & victory bonds). We'll examine government propaganda and then spend more time looking at the Suffragette movement (along with Nellie McClung and the Woman's Christian Temperance Union). We'll watch the Canada: A People's History documentary "Our Investment in Blood" (Volume 5 Chapter 3) and you'll need to complete question 2 from page 39 of the Counterpoints text.

B - Geography 12 - Today we look at Mass Wasting (falls, slides, and flows). We will figure out the causes of Mass Wasting by looking at both the driving and resisting forces on hillsides and slopes. We will try to figure out some slope stabilization practices and specifically we'll look at what has been done at Goose Spit to stop erosion of the Willemar Bluffs along Balmoral Beach. We'll also review the problems of the Sea to Sky highway (Hwy 99 from West Vancouver to Squamish). You will define rock fall, debris avalanche, landslide, mudflow, and soil creep and work on questions 27 & 32 from page 443 in your Geosystems text.
