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

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll finish part three of the assassination of Franz Ferdinand on BBC's "Days That Shook the World". After, we'll go through the initial stages of conflict from Gavrillo Princip's assassination of the Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife through the ultimatums and mobilizations that brought the wider European continent into conflict by September 1914. I'll have you take a few notes down about the Canadian Expeditionary Force and then you'll need to work on questions 1 & 2 from page 24 as well as question 2 from page 47 along with questions 2, 3, and 4 from page 28 of the Counterpoints textbook. Lastly, if there's time, we'll talk about the technology of warfare in 1914 - 1915 and how the mechanization of war enabled a horrific toll to be exacted upon soldiers and the landscape.

A Block Law 9/10 - We're going to look at the types of criminal offenses (summary conviction, indictable, hybrid) and the elements of a crime (with special attention focused on the Mens Rea - intent, knowledge, and recklessness). Today we will go over the different types of Mens Rea (Intent/Knowledge/Recklessness) and as a class we'll go over R. v. Mac (1995) and R. v. Harricharan (1995). You will then be responsible for working on the case questions from R. v. Thornton (1990) q 1-4 p.70 ( Main Question: Did Thornton have a legal duty arising out of the common-law to inform the Red Cross of his HIV status?) and R. v. Sansregret (1985) q 1-6 p.72 (Main Question: Is willful blindness relevant to a mistake of fact in consent in a sexual assault charge?)

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we are going to wrap up our work on the 1837-8 Rebellions in Canada by focusing on the report prepared by Lord Durham along with the Act of Union (1841) and responsible government in 1848. We'll look at the arrival of Lord Elgin (1847) and discover why the Rebellion Losses Bill was so controversial yet so important. We'll look at the Corn Laws passed by Britain in 1846 and see the impact that made on the Canadian economy. We'll take a few notes down and work on three questions (questions 1, 3, and 4 from page 104). After it's time to prepare for your unit final tomorrow.
