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

C - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we are going to talk about the victims of crime. Crime Victimization is a huge area of study in Criminology and we'll try to make sense of some victim statistics. I hope you brought your coloured pencils today as you will be drawing what you think the typical victim of an assault looks like. You will need to keep in mind the demographic statistics about victims and the factors that add to the risks of being a victim. This will be due on Monday and you will also have a quiz on Monday. The quiz will be on the first four pages of your notebook (the topics we covered in Law 9/10 this week).

D - Law 12
- Today we will we'll continue our look at criminal law procedures and will focus on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. Yesterday you worked on questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 on page 91. Today we'll talk about the duties of police officers and the rights of citizens upon arrest. We'll discuss R. v. Macooh (1993) together and then I'll have you work on 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.

B - Geography 12 - Today we'll continue our look at weather, completing our look at the composition and vertical structure of the atmosphere focusing on the bottom two layers (Troposphere and Stratosphere) while working on the Atmosphere in the Vertical activity. After this we'll begin our look at stratospheric ozone. After looking at the ways that ozone protects us and understanding how it can be destroyed by CFCs you'll need to complete questions 8 and 9 from page 90 in your Geosystems textbook.
US Environmental Protection Agency Stratospheric Ozone page
European Commission on the Environment Ozone page
