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

D- Law 12 - Today we'll continue our look at the Controlled Drug and Substances Act in Canada. We'll examine the legal definition of a "drug" (with the LeDain Commission explanation) and discuss what depressants, stimulants, and hallucinogens are. We'll examine schedules I - VIII in the act that prohibit and restrict substances (Opium Poppy, Coca, Cannabis, Amphetamines, Barbiturates, Anabolic Steroids, and a host of others that I can not spell or pronounce). You'll have three questions to complete:
  1. What is the legal definition of a drug
  2. What are the elements of a charge for possession
  3. What is "Intent to Possess"
A - Social Studies 11 - Today with Mr. Jones you will continue your look at the 1920's. You'll focus on the development of credit and the expansion of wealth in society (increasing ties to the US economy with manufacturing and branch plants). You'll look at the increasing role of women in Canadian society and the last component you'll look at is leisure and culture. There will be a flow diagram activity that you'll work on in class to help with this activity. The following website will help you understand some of the technological developments in the 1920's that people sought with their new found credit and wealth OHASSTA Inventions & Life in the 1920's

B- Geography 12 - Today we look at stream profiles, deltas, and floodplains. We are focusing on the erosive action of rivers along with the landforms that they create. You will need to define nickpoint, undercut bank, point bar, and slip-off slope along with copying a meandering stream profile (figure 14.15 on p.460 in the Geosystems text) and a diagram on oxbow lake formation (figure 14.16 on p.461 in the Geosystems text). Your homework is questions 17, 20, 21 & 22 from page 482 in your Geosystems text.
