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

C Block Geography 12 - Today we'll work on learning to observe as a geographer would where we'll look beyond simple observations and try to see a larger picture with connections to the wider world. We'll practice an analysis of a photo in class and you'll start working on your first assignment for the course which is a geographic analysis of a photo from a Canadian Geographic magazine. You'll need to use the Observing as a Geographer Would questions (in your week 1 package that you'll get today) to help with your analysis.

A Block Social Studies 11 - Today with Ms. Krahn you'll be starting your unit on Government. You’ll begin by discussing why government exists, and work on a social experiment to see how the role of government develops in social organizations. You’ll also briefly look at different political philosophies, or ‘isms’, and how these theories influence the political spectrum.

B Block Law 12 - Today we will continue our discussion on what crime is, why we have laws, and figure out the difference between what is legal what is moral and what is ethical. Next we'll come up with a list of laws that we know about and then we'll take down a few notes on the five functions of law.
