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

B Block Geography 12 - Today we'll continue our look at weather; working on an activity called “Sunlight and the Seasons” (week 12 package "Solar energy and the reason for seasons"). After you have finished this activity you need to complete questions 17, 19, and 20 from page 62 in your Geosystems textbook.

Don't forget, we'll start the class by looking at the synoptic chart for North America and begin to understand weather station plots. Take some time on the following sites to learn more and to practice your weather operational analysis capabilities:
WW2010 - University of Illinois Weather site
National Weather Service "Jet Stream" online weather school
American Meteorological Society "Data Streme"
British Broadcasting Corporation Reading Weather Maps
USA Today Reading Weather Maps

Practise at: Weather Office (Environment Canada) Operational Analysis Charts or at the Data Streme site above

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we are going to start the class with your first quiz in the course...Relax I'm certain that you'll do fine. After, we'll spend time discussing the differences between mass and serial murder. We will look at profiling and begin to understand what a psychopath is. Dr. Robert Hare of the University of British Columbia created a checklist called the PCL-R (Psychopathy Checklist Revised). Later this week we'll be in the library to begin the first project in the course.

D Block Social Studies 11 - To start the class today we will examine the causes of and the long term impacts of the 1929 stock market crash. We will examine the factors that led Canada (and the world) into an ever deepening depression and identify the attempts made to draw the country out of the financial turmoil that lasted throughout the 30's. We never got to it so today you have question 1 a & b from page 79 in Counterpoints to work on.
