Tuesday, October 6, 2009

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

D- Law 12 - Yesterday we looked at summary conviction, indictable, and hybrid offences and worked on questions 3-7 on page 74. Today we will go over the different types of Mens Rea (Intent/Knowledge/Recklessness) and then I'll need you to work through questions 5, 6, 8, and 9 on page 74 of the All About Law textbook. You will then be responsible for working on the case questions from R. v. Thornton (1990) q 1-4 p.70 and R. v. Sansregret (1985) q 1-6 p.72.

NOTE: Yesterday we discussed an instance of an aggravated sexual assault case involving HIV (an this relates to the R. v. Thornton case today). The case involved Trevis Smith and a review of the decision (sentenced to five and a half years in 2007 and was paroled this past February) can be found here at CBC News.

B- Geography 12 - Yesterday we took some notes about the five types of volcanoes and watched Bill Nye talk about them....Volcanoes! Today I will show you some footage of the Kilauea eruption (both pahoehoe and aa flows) and the Soufriere Hills volcanic eruption on Montserrat. We'll then look at the differences between explosive and effusive volcanic eruptions (think silica and gas) and you'll have a big question to look at. Tomorrow we will focus on Mount Saint Helens, Thursday and Friday we're in the library working on our first project, and next Tuesday you've got your first unit final.

A - Social Studies 11- Today we start looking at the Laurier Era in Canadian history. I want you to think about what life was like, here in the Comox Valley, 100 years ago in 1909. How big was the community? Where did people live? What did people do? What were manners like? What were the values of society? Look at the Courtenay and District Museum and Archives to see pictures.
Cliffe Avenue around 1900
After this discussion I'll have you look through pages 9-12 in the Counterpoints textbook and work on questions 1-4 on page 13 (due tomorrow).
