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

C Block Geography 12 - Today we'll continue our look at weather by reviewing yesterday's topics of energy distribution and the greenhouse effect (and connect those topics to global warming). Our next focus will then be on heat and temperature in the atmosphere. We'll take a look at two sections of the National Geographic video "Six Degrees Could Change the World" (1 to 3 degree temperature changes). In class today, you will need to work on questions 9 & 11 on page 118 AND questions 5, 8, 12 & 13 from page 141 and 16 from page 142 of your Geosystems textbook. We will pay more attention to global warming and climate change later on in the course. For more on the Six Degrees video check out the Interactive Site for the documentary here.

D Block Criminology 12 -  Today we start with a quick review for our first quiz in the course which we'll have tomorrow. After, I’d like you to read through the "Problems of Crime Victims" on pages 51-4 and "Theories of Victimization" dealing with Victim Precipitation, Lifestyle, and Routine Activities on pages 61-64 in the Criminology: The Core text. After discussing these sections your job will be to complete the following:

1. Explain the impacts of crime on victims (both short and long term)
2. Explain and compare the three theories of crime victimization (as a silo chart) and
3. Questions 2 & 3 on page 72 in the text

A Block Social Studies 11 - Today I have the library booked for you to continue working on your "Cold War Flashpoints" activity where you will analyze the following four conflicts through a W5H approach: Korean War, Vietnam War, Suez Crisis, and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Remember that W5H = Who (countries & people) was involved; What happened during the conflict; When did the conflict take place; Where did the conflict break out and spread to; Why did the conflict occur; and How was Canada involved and affected by the conflict. You may use the following websites for help:
Canadian involvement in the Korean War
Lester B. Pearson the Suez Crisis and the creation of the UNEF
Cuban Missile Crisis 
Vietnam War

B Block Law 12 -  Today we'll finish our look at Criminal Law by shifting into sentencing. We'll look at the objectives of sentencing (deterrence, retribution, rehabilitation, re socialization, and segregation). You will need to answer the following questions:
  1. Define: absolute discharge, conditional discharge, probation, suspended sentence, concurrent sentence, consecutive sentence, intermittent sentence, indeterminate sentence, parole, day parole, statutory release, and pardon
  2. page 298 questions 2 &3
We'll be finished our Criminal Law unit today and then tomorrow we'll begin looking at Civil Law and Civil procedures. I'll have your final project ready for you hopefully by Friday and if not by then certainly by no later than next Monday. You'll have a Criminal Law quiz this Thursday and I'll give you a quick review for that tomorrow.
