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

B Block Geography 12 - Today we'll get into the movie Dante's Peak. All the really cool stuff (Volcanic destruction) that happens in the movie starts off pretty quick after about 40 minutes into the movie. You have questions from the movie that are due on Friday and I'll give you time to answer them after we finish the movie. NOTE: Your Orting, Washington case study is due Friday and you have a unit final tomorrow so please keep on top of things.

A Block Criminology 12 - OK so we know where violence comes from. We know what homicide is, the divisions of murder and why people do it. We understand what sexual assault is, the typology of assault and the motives for doing it. Today I'll finish up the violence section with you by looking at abuse, domestic assault and terrorism. You'll have a unit quiz on Friday and tomorrow we'll begin property crime.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today you have time to work on the questions from the end of yesterday's class. Our focus today is understanding the culture of Canada at the turn of the century. You'll need to understand the following concepts: prejudice, stereotyping, ethnocentricism, xenophobia, and racism. This will help with the questions on assimilation of aboriginal culture, restrictions on Asian immigration, and fear over the changes to Canadian culture.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll be in the library working on the Rookie Training section of the Rice University CSI Web experience site. I'd like you to mess around and coomplete the training for Forensic Biology (DNA), Toxicology, Firearms and Toolmarks (Ballistics), Medical Examiner (Pathologist) and CSI Ethics. Tomorrow I have the library booked again and you'll have time to work through the intermediate case (Canine Caper). Rice University CSI Web Adventure site.
