Wednesday September 21. 2011

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

B Block Geography 12 - Today we'll finish our look at the interior structure of the Earth. We'll watch a Brain Pop video on this along with the rest of the Amazing Planet DVD from National Geographic. You may use the Earth Interior web page to help with questions 7 & 8 from page 366 of your Geosystems text (answers can be found between pages 334 and 336 of the text). We'll then discuss the differences between Sial and Sima (continental and oceanic crust) along with figuring out what buoyancy and isostasy are. You'll need to complete question 9 from page 366 of the text (isostasy, isostatic rebound, and crustal equilibrium). If you need help look at the Geology for Kids web page, the flash animated movie on the Kids Know It network, or the enotes Isostasty: World of Earth Science page. If you missed it here's part of the the DVD

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we start with your questions from yesterday's class on victim theories (active & passive victimization; deviant place & high risk lifesytles; and routine activities) and school (from page 72 in the text). We'll work on that for the first half hour or so and then we'll try to understand what a victim of crime is. For the last part of the class we'll discuss victims of crime and victimology. We'll look at the Holly Jones murder case in Toronto (2003) and try to find out what impact that would have on her family, her classmates at school, her neighbourhood, and really the entire greater Toronto metropolitan area.

Lastly we'll start a quick look at crime patterns and trends in Canada.

D Block Social Studies 11 -
Yesterday we began a discussion on the qualities of leadership and with a partner I asked you to brainstorm a list of people who you think make good leaders and identify the qualities or traits of leadership that you admire or think are important. Then I had you work on the following questions:

1. What are your top five qualities of leadership? Explain them with examples to help.
2. How can leaders motivate people to follow them and get people to be involved in social issues?
3. What is the worst fault a leader can have? Why?
4. Can you be a good leader but not be a good communicator? Why or why not?
5. Why is it important to have a good leader as the Prime Minister of Canada?

Today we'll spend a bit of time going over your work and I'll have you work on questions 1 & 2 from page 233 and question 7 from page 247 in the Counterpoints textbook on the Senate.

C Block Law 9/10
- Today we will venture off to the library to begin work on a small project about nasty people. It will be your job to create a poster on a serial killer.

Select a criminal from the list below and discuss your selection with me to obtain approval to proceed with your research no later than Today. No more than two students may choose the same criminal and your selection of a criminal is on a first-come, first-served basis. Prepare a poster on your criminal that must include the following information:

1. Name of the criminal (including an image of them) along with any aliases they may have.
Summary (not details) of the crime(s) the criminal committed, with corresponding dates (year only) of the crimes.
2. Explain the type of victim that the criminal sought
3. Explain how the criminal was caught (by whom & how? What led to his/her capture?)
4. Indicate the criminal's background, childhood, method of committing the crime, and characteristics which cause the criminal to fit within the particular theory you selected.
5. State, define, and explain the criminological theory, (classical, biological, psychological, sociological, or integrated) which explains the criminal's behaviour
6. State which serial killer category the criminal is: mission-oriented, hedonistic, visionary, power/control, thrill killer, expedience killer; (and define whichever category you select)
