Thursday, October 13. 2011

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

D Block Social Studies 11 - Yesterday we looked at ethnocentricism, xenophobia, and racism. This will help with questions 1 to 4 on page 13 in the Counterpoints, especially the ones on assimilation of aboriginal culture, restrictions on Asian immigration, and fear over the changes to Canadian culture. Yesterday I posted some links and for Residential Schools and Assimilation see:
CBC News Residential Schools
CBC A History of Residential Schools in Canada
Residential Schools at Surviving the Past

For Asian Immigration restrictions see:
Canada In the Making: Asian Immigration

Those questions are due today and for the remainder of the class we'll take a look at 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 complete questions 1-3 on page 16.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll be back in the library working on the Rookie Training section of the Rice University CSI Web experience site. Don't forget that you should complete the training for Forensic Biology (DNA), Toxicology, Firearms and Toolmarks (Ballistics), Medical Examiner (Pathologist) and CSI Ethics FIRST. Today I'd like you to work through the intermediate case (Canine Caper). Rice University CSI Web Adventure site.
If there's time after then you can continue work on your Clue Us In crime scene project which is due next Monday.

B Block Geography 12 - Today is your Tectonics Unit Final Test. I hope you come prepared (A.K.A. you studied!) If you did study then I'm sure you'll do fine. You'll need the entire block for the test. Good Luck!

A Block Criminology 12 - So yesterday we got caught up in Pepe le Pew (who in the cartoon committed break and enter, criminal mischief, kidnapping, criminal harassment and sexual assault). Today I'll finish up the violence section with you by looking at abuse, domestic assault and terrorism all which will help you with your unit quiz on Friday. After, we'll begin property crime, where we'll discuss the history of theft and make sense of the differences between occasional and professional thieves.
