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

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we'll start with our work on questions 2, 4, and 5 from page 64 of the Horizons text. After this we'll look at the Colonial government structure (Governor appointed members of the Executive and Legislative Councils that routinely ignored the wishes of the elected Assembly). Yesterday we looked at the Underground Railroad and I talked with you a bit about the Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum at the Burkle Estate that I visited in Memphis Tennessee.The map to the left will help you visualize the routes to Canada and the links on yesterday's blogsite will help too. Monday sees us look at the characters involved in the Upper Canada Rebellion.

A Block Law 9/10
Today we will continue our look at crime scene investigation as you'll get a photocopied handout of your "Clue Us In" crime scene reconstruction/investigation assignment that you'll have time to work on in the library next week. I will show you an episode of "I Detective" (Identity Unknown). On the video, you'll be presented with a crime scene and at a point will be posed with a multiple choice question to answer. I'll pause the episode and you will be required to choose an answer (they'll give you three options). We'll see how good of a crime scene detective you really are. From FOXCrime:

Armchair detectives and forensic science junkies get the opportunity to solve real cases. I, Detective is a television series that combines the elements of documentary, murder mystery and quiz shows. Each half-hour show gives viewers the opportunity to follow clues, find evidence and learn how this information is used to solve some of the most intriguing investigations using the same evidence, suspects, motives and witness statements that actual investigators encounter in their quest to solve the crime.

B Block Social Studies 11 -  VOTING DAY. Today the culmination of your hard campaign work takes place. Mr. Stevens class will receive their ballots and voting will take place in their riding (room 803). I will tabulate the votes and then publish the results to you in class today. You will have time in today's class to finish your Charter questions from Wednesday and then you should review...yep that means you've got a test next week...Monday to be exact. You have all that you need to succeed but I'll review the unit with you today.
