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

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today I have the notebook lab for you to continue our work on the Rebellions Editorial activity. Remember you need to determine whether the rebels were either justified in their actions or were traitors to the King and England. Remember it is 1840, one year before the Act of Union, but Durham's recommendations would be public knowledge in the colonies by now (responsible government, union of the Canadas, more equality of the churches, and more local control in governance). The editorial is due this Thursday, the day of your Rebellions Unit Final.

A Block Law 9/10 - Today we are going to start with our third quiz on the course (focusing on the forensic scientists in the lab and the work they do to solve crimes). After, we'll look through the physical and mental elements of a crime. We'll focus on the three types of criminal intent and understand the difference between Strict Liability and Indictable Offenses in Canada (remember that in Canada we do not have felony and misdemeanor offences). Next, we'll look at the four parties to a criminal offense and you'll begin a small cartoon activity about the topic. You'll get an 11x17 sheet of paper; you'll select one criminal offense; and then you'll need to draw/identify the four parties to that offense (primary actor or perpetrator, aider, abettor, and counselor).

B Block Social Studies 11 -  Today we start by reviewing the work from yesterday's class where we started our look at the economic causes of the first world war. Today we'll focus on imperialism and militarism. We'll then look at the British naval escalation (HMS Dreadnought) and the massive arms development in Germany. After this we'll review the system of alliances (Triple Alliance / Triple Entente) and nationalism (Serbian "Black Hand" and Austria-Hungary control over the Balkans). Lastly we will look at Gavrillo Princip and the assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sofia. At the end of class today, you will need to work on questions 1 & 2 from page 24 along with question 2 from page 47 in the Counterpoints textbook.
