Friday, October 14. 2011

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

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we will take the first twenty-five minutes of class to write our violent crime quiz. After we'll finish the Criminal Minds episode from Friday (The Aftermath) and discuss the profile of the unsub. Lastly, we'll begin our look at property crimes, where we'll discuss the history of theft and make sense of the differences between occasional and professional thieves. You'll need to answer the following:

What are the differences between a professional and an occasional thief?
What is a "situational inducement"?
What is a "Booster", a "Heel", a "Snitch", a "Fence"?

B Block Geography 12 - Thank you for your effort on your test yesterday. Remember I pushed the due date for the Orting project to Monday but if you have it done please hand it in to me. Today we are watching one of the worst disaster movies of all time...Dante's Peak. You will have a series of questions to answer about the volcanology in the movie. Believe it or not there are actually some good things about the movie. Seriously though there are too many errors in science to count but you'll need to try to identify a few. We'll finish as much of the movie as we can today.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today you'll write quiz three of the course on crime scenes and forensics. After the quiz we will continue our look at criminal forensics by getting fingerprinted. We will all get one set of fingers (and thumb) on one hand fingerprinted (our non dominant hand) by using graphite pencils and scotch tape. You will need to identify whether or not your prints are loops, arches, or whorls and then place them up on the blackboard. We will then count up the total number of loops, arches, and whorls for each finger (and thumb) for the class and graph the data. If there's time, we'll finish the CSI episode from season 3 that we began last week (Abra Cadaver where Grissom, Warrick, and Sara investigate when a woman vanishes while taking part in a magician's act. The primary suspect is the magician. Catherine and Nick investigate the apparent overdose of a rock star).

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we are going to finish the Laurier Era work we started this week. First we'll look at yesterday's work on the changes to the economy of Canada in the early 20th Century. We'll talk about advances in technology and the resource extraction economy. We'll talk about unions and the gap between wealth and poverty and you'll need to hand in questions 1-3 from page 16. For the rest of the class, we'll understand the differences between primary and secondary sources in historical research and I'll have you practice that by working on questions 1-7 on page 18-19 in the Counterpoints textbook (Building Your Skills: Analyzing primary and secondary sources). For more information to help on "The Last Best West" see the Canadian Museum of Civilization on line exhibit. For more on primary documents see the Ontario History Quest.

Monday we are turning our focus to the underlying causes of the First World War.
