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

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll do a quick review for your second quiz (this Thursday) dealing with the topics we covered in Law 9/10 last week (mass & serial murder, profiling, and criminal pathology). After, we'll finish our look at profiling by examining Geographic profiling. I'll ask you to brainstorm a list of locations in the Comox Valley that you feel crime will be more prevalent in and you'll have to justify your reasoning. We'll work on a Comox Valley Crime Map from the Comox Valley CrimeStoppers website. For more on Geographic profiling check out:

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today we will continue our work on the Dictatorship for Dummies project that we started in the library yesterday. This is your first major project for term two and can be a very effective way of starting off the term well! You will have today and tomorrow to work on this assignment and please ask as many questions as you need to do well. Good luck!

B Block Geography 12 - First we'll finish two sections of the BBC DVD The Weather on wind (focusing on wind speeds in hurricane Andrew and the EF5 Moore, Oklahoma tornado). Today we'll look at atmospheric moisture, humidity, and the four atmospheric mechanisms that cool a parcel of air to its dew point & cause precipitation (orographic, convectional, frontal, and radiative cooling). You will complete questions 9 from page 211 and 21 & 23 from page 212 of your Geosystems textbook. While you are working on the questions I'll have the BBC DVD The Weather on for us to watch the WET episode. The Weather is a major BBC documentary exploring the extremes of the world's climate with the engaging presenter Donal MacIntyre and in WET we rde with the rain from the wettest place in Europe to the wettest place in the world, with a stop under the parched Texan skies, where farmers hope to harness the power of nature to create rain. From the first drop of a monsoon to the floods that kill millions each year, water brings life and death in equal measure
