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

B - Geography 12 - Today we are working on the Medicine Hat Topographic map. You need your Canadian Landscape topographic map book and the Medicine Hat map can be found on pages 40-42. You will need to work on questions 1 a-d, 2 a & b, 3 a-e, and 7 a-d. This work is due Friday and I will give you tomorrow's class to work on this activity as well. If you wish to work on this activity out of the class I would highly suggest you ask me questions ahead of time. You can find topographic maps of Medicine Hat on Google Maps (Type in Medicine Hat Alberta on a Google search and click on maps at the top and then choose "Terrain" as an option).

A - Social Studies 11 - With Mr. Jones you will be focusing on the differences between William Lyon Mackenzie King and Liberal party policies as opposed to R.B. Bennett and Conservative party policies in the 1930's. You'll work on a Venn diagram activity and then examine Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "New Deal" in the USA (including a Brain Pop video on the topic) and Bennett's response in Canada.

D - Law 12 -Today we will we'll begin our look at criminal law defenses focusing on alibi, self-defense, legal duty, and excusable conduct. You will need to complete questions 1-4 on page 141 of the All About Law text. Next we look at mental disorder, intoxication, and automatism. If there's time, we'll watch a video on the Kenneth Parks homicidal somnambulism case (sleepwalking murder R. v. Parks, 1992). There is a great read on TruTV (used to be called Court TV) about the case. It is interesting to note that the same defense was attempted in Arizona in failed. You can read about the case involving Scott Falater who stabbed his wife 44 times and claimed he was sleepwalking here. We'll watch the Exhibit A episode on the R. v. Parks (1992) case and then I'll ask you to complete questions 1-3 on page 129 and 5, 6, and 7 on page 141.
