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

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we are in the library to begin work on a World War One poster assignment. Although the cost in lives was great, the First World War helped transform Canada into a modern industrial nation with international standing. So the question you need to answer is:

What effect did Canada’s participation in the First World War have on Canadian society and its status as a nation?

In a poster assess and explain the Political, Economic, Social and Cultural changes to Canada, from the outset to the end of the First World War. Find specific primary source data that will help explain or show the changes to Canada using:

1. Original Documents (excerpts or translations acceptable): Diaries, speeches, manuscripts, letters, interviews, news film footage, autobiographies, maps, official records -OR-
2. Creative Works: Poetry, drama, novels, music, art

For each category use point form information that explains the changes to Canada and come up with a summative paragraph that explains your own view about the changes to our country as a result of our participation in the war. Your poster should then have 5 sections (4 point form and 1 written paragraph) and lots of pictures and documents that will help you explain your points of view.

C Block Law 9/10 - Here are some previous examples of the Forensic science web page project for you to look at if you'd like:
Forensic Pathology
Forensic Serology or Forensic Serology
Computer Forensics

Forensic Physics
Forensic Toxicology
Forensic Voice Identification
Today we'll be in the classroom wrapping up out look at Criminal Law by focusing on sentencing and the Youth Criminal Justice Act. I'll have a question box for you to place any question you'd like answered but that we didn't get to in the course. I'll try to answer them over the next two days.

B Block Geography 12
- Today we're continuing our look at water by focusing on coastal processes and landforms. We will look at how water erodes, shapes, and creates coastal
landscapes by focusing on long shore current & drift. We'll analyze the differences between an erosional and depositional coastline and try to make sense of the hazards of living along depositional coastlines (think Cape Hatteras, North Carolina). For additional information and help on questions 8, 11, 13, & 14 in your Geosystems text go to:

A Block Criminology 12
- Today we'll continue with our seminar discussions on the topics you've been researching. I'll ask for "volunteers" rather than "voluntolds" to get the ball rolling today. I am really looking forward to seeing what Criminological topic you're interested in. Remember you've got a minimum of five minutes and this is not a stressful situation. Good luck.
