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

B Block Geography 12 - Today....Oh today we start weather, the best topic ever! Before we get to my favourite topic you need to hand in to me your topographic maps of Medicine Hat and after, you'll need to brainstorm a list of things you know (or think you know) about weather and questions you've always wanted answered about the topic. After, we will look at extremes of weather to get an idea of how cool (or hot) weather really is. I'm so excited to be starting weather! Hail, lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes are four on "the list" get ready, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Every day we are going to start by looking at the synoptic forecast along with weather maps.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll share your own theories of why crime happens. We'll see if there are any similarities amongst the different theories we made and try to understand just what that may mean. Next we'll look in the course text (handout) and discuss the biological AND sociological reasons for criminal behaviour. Tomorrow we'll look at victims and victimology.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Using chapter 3 in the Counterpoints textbook (pages 48-72) you need to identify the changes in and challenges to Canada for the following four topics:
  1. Arts, Culture, and Leisure
  2. Government, International Autonomy, and Political Parties
  3. Industry, Jobs, and Wealth
  4. Society (race, gender, social class), Urbanization, and Values
This will be done in a webbed format and needs to show the massive cultural and economic shift that occurred in the 1920's. When completing this activity you'll need to identify any connections between the topics that you can and I'll spend some time going through these topics with you in the class today and tomorrow.
