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

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today Ms. Krahn will be working with you on the role that Canadian women played in the First World War. You'll look at the Suffragette movement (Nellie McClung) and see how women were finally enfranchised in Canada. You'll also look at work roles on the home front and how women served overseas.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll review the three court levels in BC (Provincial Court, Supreme Court and BC Court of Appeals). You'll need to complete questions 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, and 26 of the assigned question handout by Friday this week (you'll have time both today and tomorrow to work through this). Don't forget that on Monday you’ll have your final quiz. While you work on the questions, I will put on a video to help you with the answers .

B Block Geography 12 - Today we're looking at streams and drainage basins. You'll need to work on a few definitions, a diagram, and questions 1, 3, 10, 11, and 12 from page 481 in your Geosystems textbook. A map of Canada's drainage basins can be found here and the Canadian Atlas online has a great section on drainage basins too. Notes on these topics can be found here. Don't forget that we looked at this topic on Tuesday when we took our walk along the Tsolum River so try to think of what we looked at when working through this work.

A Block Criminology 12 - Today, you'll be introduced to Edwin H. Sutherland's Differential Association Theory (he introduced the concept "white collar crime"). We'll take a few notes and see what we can find on the Internet about white collar crime....spoil alert LOTS!
National Check Fraud Center
Robert O. Keel White Collar Crime
Canadian Encyclopedia White Collar Crime
Federal Bureau of Investigation White Collar Crime Division
Understanding White Collar Crime
News Stories of White Collar Crime
After, we'll watch Chapters 1-8 in the movie "The Corporation" and for our last blog entry, you will need to work on the "Can Corporations Commit Murder" questions 1 & 2 from page 285 as well as question 1 from page 291 in your Criminology the Core textbook. Please do not forget that the documentary is an opinion is trying to persuade you that a corporation acts like a psychopath. Not all business is bad but we do need to understand the "corporate view" of white collar criminal activity.

Watch the documentary on You Tube here!
