Friday, November 4. 2011

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

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll continue with your questions that you submitted for me to answer yesterday. We'll do this for about half an hour and then we'll watch a Law & Order episode in class.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we're back in the class for you to work on either your Treaty of Versailles work or your poster project that you began yesterday. The Treaty of Versailles work is due today in class as I want to get it back to you in order for you to begin preparations for your unit final. I'll give you a quick review for the unit final in class today and you should begin studying for it as it will be on Tuesday (November 8th).

A Block Criminology 12 - Today, we continue our seminar discussions on the topics you've been researching. Thank you to everyone who has presented so far and I am really looking forward to seeing what Criminological topic you're going to share with the class today. Remember you've got a minimum of five minutes but no more than about eight minutes today so that we can accommodate everyone. Good luck.

B Block Geography 12 - Today we're looking at glaciers and we'll make sense of how they erode the landscape and examine the landforms they create. We'll understand the differences amongst the various alpine and continental glaciers and we'll define: cirque, arete, pyramidical peak, hanging valley, truncated spur, esker, drumlin, kettle lake, and fjord; along with questions 3, 8, and 12 from page 587 in your Geosystems text.
