Day 43 - Wednesday November 10. 2010

Today's morning schedule is altered to accomodate the Remembrance Day assembly:

B Block 8:55-9:55
A Block 10:00-10:55
Assembly 11:00-11:35

The rest of the day follows the normal schedule.

A - Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today in Law we will pick up from where we left off yesterday. I asked you to brainstorm a list of all the reasons you can think of why someone would commit a crime. Today you'll get into groups of three and I'll give you a large sheet of paper and some markers. You need to combine your lists together and get them on papaer so we can present them to class. Don't forget that I asked you to talk with a parental unit last night in order to get their ideas about the same topic (to see if they though differently from you) so feel free to add their ideas. We'll present these ideas to the class and have a discussion about what they mean.

D - 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 tFriday'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).

C - Law 12 - Today we will we'll continue our look at criminal law defenses focusing on legal duty, excusable conduct, intoxication, and automatism. We'll finish the Kenneth Parks video (sorry for the sound quality) on non insane automatism and then we will watch a video about the recreation of the Stanley Milgram experiment. This relates to the Shepardsville, Kentucky McDonald's sexual assault case and legal duty as a criminal law defence. For the time left in class, you will need to complete questions 1-7 on page 141 questions 1-3 on page 129 and 5, 6, and 7 on page 141 of the All About Law text (Not for homework I'll give you time on Friday to complete it).
