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

B- Geography 12 - Today we'll continue our look at weather, the best topic ever! We'll start by looking at the synoptic chart for North America and begin to understand weather station plots. Take some time on the following sites to learn more and to practise your weather operational analysis capabilities:
WW2010 - University of Illinois Weather site
National Weather Service "Jet Stream" online weather school
American Meteorological Society "Data Streme"
British Broadcasting Corporation Reading Weather Maps
USA Today Reading Weather Maps

Practise at: Weather Office (Environment Canada) Operational Analysis Charts or at the Data Streme site above

For the rest of the class we'll look at the composition and vertical structure of the atmosphere focusing on the bottom two layers (Troposphere and Stratosphere). There will be no homework tonight and tomorrow we'll complete the Atmosphere in the Vertical activity along with the questions on ozone.

A - Social Studies 11 - Today with Mr. Jones you will be in the library working on a time line of significant events for World War 2 activity. In this activity you'll get a map and time line, a worksheet for taking notes on the relevance of each event, and a list of required events (Dieppe, Ortona, Hong Kong, D-Day, Liberation of the Netherlands, Stalingrad, the Blitz, Operation Sea Lion, Operation Barbarossa, Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima & Nagasaki) and optional/ bonus events (North African Campaign, Iwo Jima, Fall of France, fire bombing of Dresden, El Alamein, Battle of the Bulge). You'll have today and Friday in the library for research and this activity will be due next week in class.

D- Law 12 - Today we move into criminal law procedures and will focus on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. You will work on the R. v. Macooh (1993) case, questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 on page 91 and questions 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 on page 97 of your All About Law text. If there's time you may continue working on your Criminal Law Defenses activity. Remember that this activity is due Thursday (November 19th) and your Criminal Law test is on that day as well. The test is on all of the material that we have covered in our criminal law unit (Chapters 3, 7, 8, and the last section of Chapter 5 in All About Law). Please take some time to review your notes and questions that you have had returned to you in the "outbox" in the class.

C - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we'll look in the course text (handout) and discuss the biological AND sociological reasons for criminal behaviour. Tomorrow we'll look at victims and victimology.
