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

B Block Geography 12 - Today, you'll need to work on the physical weathering questions in your week 7 package: definition of frost action, exfoliation, and pressure release jointing along with questions 10, 12, 13, and 15 from page 442 of your Geosystems textbook. You can find the answers between pages 420-423 in the text. Next, we move on to chemical weathering. We'll take some notes down about carbonation (solution), oxidation, and hydration and fill in a chart on weathering types, rates, and their connection to climate conditions.

Lastly you'll need to work on questions 17, 20, and 21 from page 443 in the Geosystems text and you can find the answers between pages 423-427 in the text.
We'll use the animations found at the University of Kentucky Earth & Environmental Sciences department

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll focus our efforts at the beginning of class on auto theft. You'll need to explain the five types of motor vehicle theft and identify how you can protect your vehicle from being stolen (target hardening strategies). The Kanetix website below lists the top vehicles stolen in Canada and check out this article on the Macleans website for the article on the top 100 cities for auto theft in Canada.

After this, you'll have some time to finish up our shoplifting poster from yesterday.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll quickly review the four causes of the first world war (Hint: we've talked about them, taken notes about them, done a question about them, and reviewed them so you might want to remember them for both your near and distant future). Next we'll go through the initial stages of conflict from Gavrillo Princip's assassination of the Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife through the ultimatums and mobilizations that brought the wider European continent into conflict by September 1914.

C Block Law 9/10 - I'll quickly review the three types of Mens Rea (Criminal Intent, Recklessness, and Knowledge) and then we'll talk about ways to compel someone to show up in court. We'll discuss appearance notices, summons; and arrests (along with the rights of private security guards and citizens), we'll talk about your rights and obligations upon arrest, searches with and without warrants and pre-trial releases (bail, recognizance, and surety). For the end of today's class, I've got a few questions and an activity I'd like you to work on. The questions deal with getting an accused person to show up to court:
  1. Name the three ways in which the police can bring an accused person to court
  2. What two questions must a Justice of the Peace ask when deciding whether to issue an arrest warrant
  3. Explain when a police officer may make an arrest without an arrest warrant
  4. Explain the three situations when a citizen may make an arrest
  5. What are the limitations on the powers of private citizens or security guards when making an arrest
  6. Saul is stopped by the police and told he is being arrested for impaired driving. He says "Oh no" and runs off. Has Saul been arrested? Explain.
  7. Talia is accused by a store owner of shoplifting. The police ask her to go to the station house for questioning and she goes with them voluntarily. Has Talia been arrested? Explain.

Now I'd like you to make a small poster (on 11x17 paper) showing the rights and obligations of an arrested person. Illustrate your poster with drawings in order to help graphically describe your rights and obligations upon arrest.
