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

D- Law 12 - Today we'll revisit the topic of abortion in Canada and the laws surrounding this topic (CC section 223 subsections 1 & 2). We'll understand the United States landmark case Roe v. Wade (1973) and the Canadian landmark case R. v. Morgentaler (1988). I'll need you to separate the legal issues from the moral and ethical issues as this is a very controversial topic amongst many. After this discussion you'll need to work on weapon offenses and procuring and soliciting. Questions 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 on page 199 of the law text will need to be finished in class today.

A - Social Studies 11 - Don't forget that tomorrow you have a World War One unit final test. Today we will start the class looking at the Halifax Explosion and its impact on Canada during the war. Next we'll find out how the war ended and then spend the entire class looking at the Paris Peace Conferences and the Treaty of Versailles. You'll get a work package of handouts and will be responsible for completing the following seven questions:
  1. Great Suffering work section questions A and B
  2. Great Expectations work section questions A and C
  3. Europe Re-Shaped: The Other Paris Peace Treaties work section question A
  4. A Dictated Peace: The Treaty of Versailles work section questions A and B

B- Geography 12 - Today we'll quickly review the Mass Wasting work we did yesterday. Today we look at three types of snow avalanches (loose, wet, and slab). We'll understand where they occur, why they happen, and figure out the physics of snow mass movement. I'll show you a video on avalanches and then there is no homework tonight.
