Thursday, November 10. 2011

We have an assembly bell schedule today in order to accommodate the Remembrance Day assembly. The day looks like this:

D 9:05 - 10:00
AG 10:05 - 10:15
C 10:20 - 11:15
Assembly 11:20 - 12:20
Lunch 12:20 - 1:00

D Block Social Studies 11 - So yesterday we got caught up in talk about Communism and some other big "isms" (Liberalism, Conservatism and Socialism). Today we'll get to yesterday's work that we didn't cover. So, we'll look at the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 and assess its impact on countries throughout Europe and here in Canada. After this we'll discuss what a union is and the perception of unions in 1919. Lastly I'd like you to look at the section on the Winnipeg General Strike in your Counterpoints textbook and work on questions 1 & 2 from page 51.

C Block Law 9/10 - So yesterday we clustered your reasons why people commit crime into categories. You looked at biological factors and sociological factors that may contribute to crime. Today, you'll get two handouts on Crime Theories. The first handout will be on Economic exclusion and Social exclusion where you'll read a fictional story about "Suzanne" and will need to identify the factors that led her to a life of crime. The second handout will be on Classical, Biological, Sociological and Interactionist crime theory where you will need to evaluate them (what you like about them and what you disagree with them about)...don't worry we'll go through them together in class today. After, you'll have to complete part two of today's assignment - this means you need to create your own theory of why crime happens. Remember you need to use the brainstormed list we did in class along with part one of the assignment (analysis of classical, biological, sociological, and interactionist theories).
Use the Crime Theory Web Site found on this link.

B Block Geography 12 - Today you have your Gradation Unit Final test. This test will take the whole class to complete and if came prepared then I am certain you will do fine. Relax, breathe, and dazzle me with what you know.

Now I know our weather unit starts on Monday but there's a warning of a storm of "epic proportions" for the weekend here in BC. Check out the article on it here.
