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

B Block Geography 12 - Today we'll continue our look at resources, resource use, and management issues. We'll talk again about renewable and non-renewable resources along with the four ethical views on resource use (economic/exploitation; preservationist; balanced-multiple use; and ecological or sustainable). After, we'll watch the first few sections of the Human Footprint DVD we previewed yesterday. Don't forget starting today I'd like you to track your water consumption for the week.

D Block Social Studies 11 - Today you'll have some time to finish the activity you started with Mr. Doll on Wednesday and we'll take a quick look at issues surrounding multiculturalism in Canada. After this, we'll begin our look at human-social geography. We will start with population issues and today you'll get a handout on the history of human population. We'll talk about fertility (crude birth rates) and mortality (crude death rates) and the RNI (rate of natural increase). We'll examine population pyramids and the demographic transition model.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today you'll have some time to work through the rights and obligations upon arrest poster that we started yesterday. This will be due on Monday when we go back in the lab for our next two days of research for our forensic science webpage activity. When we've had a bit of time to work on the poster I'll show you an episode of Law & Order from Season 14 called "Bodies". From investigating the death of a teenaged girl, the detectives stumble on a pattern of crimes that indicate they are after a serial killer. The suspect, however, puts the prosecutors through an ethical ringer when he discloses his attorney's knowledge of the victims and their whereabouts.
Your questions from the last few days are due today.
