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

A Block Law 9/10 - Today you'll be in the library so that you may continue working on your forensic science web page project. Do not forget that this assignment is due next week and it a major component of your final grade for the course. Please remember that the books I have on forensics and crime scenes are great resources for you to use them (I'll bring them along to the library with me). When you finish your site please provide me your URL and I will check it out an post a link on this site. Do not forget that you need a links page that is in essence your bibliography and you need at least one print source for the project. Please make sure that the spelling of the web page address is correct. If your page is and you give me the address then I won't be able to view it and therefore will not be able to mark it. The best way to give me your address is to cut and paste the address and mail it to me (my e-mail address is on the course outline). Work hard and have fun.

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we are going to continue our editorial cartoon work. Your cartoons are due Monday in class so it would be wise to spend today's class time in a productive and useful other words get it done. Some help:

For your Pro/Anti Confederation cartoon consider

  1. context — the circumstances in which it was created (imagine it is 1865 or 1866 in the Atlantic colony you've selected)
  2. content — the details of what it shows (how will you convey your message of pro or anti confederation)
  3. target — who or what it is directed at (colonists or politicians)
  4. style — how it presents the content, through images, words and humour which taken together determine its
  5. message — the key point it is trying to make, or the idea it is putting forward. 
and remember:
  1. symbolism - using an object to stand for an idea
  2. captioning and labels - used for clarity and emphasis
  3. analogy - a comparison between two unlike things that share some characteristics
  4. irony - the difference between the way things are and the way things should be or the way things are expected to be
  5. exaggeration or characture - overstating or magnifying a problem or a physical feature or habit: big nose, bushy eyebrows, large ears, baldness
