Monday, October 17. 2011

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

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we will have the opportunity to get caught up on our journal work. So far you should have four entries:
  • personal theory of crime
  • short and long term effects of being a crime victim
  • serial & mass murder in Canada (Olson & Lepine)
  • hypermasculinity & sexual assault
Today should be your fifth entry and I'd like you to tell me about auto theft. I'd like you to look up information on why people steal cars, where in Canada most cars are stolen from, what types of vehicles are most commonly stolen and I'd like you to tell me how much auto theft is actually happening in Canada (rates). Then I'd like you to tell me methods of protection (how to stop your car from being stolen).

B Block Geography 12 - Today we finish Dante's Peak and don't forget that you have a series of questions to answer about the volcanology of the movie. Today is the main portion of the volcanic eruption and the effects that Dante's Peak takes on the small town that sits in a valley near its base. Speaking of small towns sitting at a base of a volcano...your Orting High School construction report (Case Study) is due today. Please make sure you submit your explanations as to whether a new school should be built in this small town that sits in a valley near the base of Mount Rainier.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we will finish up the fingerprinting activity that we began on Friday. You 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. After you've finished your graph we'll turn our focus to Criminal Law in Canada; specifically looking at the physical and mental elements of a crime, the three types of criminal intent, attempts, conspiracies and the four parties to an offense.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today, to start, you'll have some time to finish your document analysis activity from Friday, then you'll receive a few photocopied handouts on the outbreak of World War 1 (The Balance of Power, The Eastern Question and The Road to War). We'll look at the four underlying causes of Imperialism, Nationalism, Militarism, and the System of Alliances
