Friday, March 30. 2012

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

Aaah...the last day before our two week Spring Break. Enjoy

C Block Geography 12 - If the weather holds, I'd like for us to take the class to walk down to the Tsolum River to look at fluvial processes and riparian environments. This field exploration connects to the topics we looked at last week (floods this past Wednesday, floodplains and stream profiles last Friday, along with fluvial transport and stream dynamics last Thursday). I hope that you brought some sturdy shoes with you for our exploration of the river. If the weather turns then we'll have the class to finish up and handing in all week 8 & 9 work as today is the last day of Term 3.

B Block Law 12 - Today we are back in the library to continue work on our Canadian Criminal Defense project. Don't forget that you need to find three recent (in the last two years) criminal cases where a defense we discussed this past week was used. The defenses are: Alibi, Non-Insane Automatism, Intoxication, Insane Automatism, Battered Woman Syndrome, Self-defense, Necessity, Duress, Ignorance of the law, Mistake of fact, Entrapment, Double jeopardy, and Provocation. Places to find cases - CanLII is a non-profit organization managed by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. CanLII's goal is to make Canadian law accessible for free on the Internet. Click through the databases on the side (provinces and territories) and search by year (2012-2011-2010)...anytime you see Supreme/Superior court or court of Queen's Bench you'll find serious criminal casesd (remember look for R. v. in the case citation). Canoe is is a leading Canadian internet portal offering news, sports and entertainment from Sun Media. Crime news stories can be found in the Crime portion of the News section.

A Block Social Studies 11 - Today with Ms. Krahn...Happy Friday Socials 11! You made it!
