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

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today I'll begin with a brief overview of the 1920's in Canada (The Roaring Twenties) and then you'll start the activity we didn't get to on Friday. Using chapter 3 in the Counterpoints textbook (pages 48-72) you need to identify the changes in and challenges to Canada for the following four topics:
  1. Arts, Culture, and Leisure
  2. Government, International Autonomy, and Political Parties
  3. Industry, Jobs, and Wealth
  4. Society (race, gender, social class), Urbanization, and Values
This will be done in a webbed format and needs to show the massive cultural and economic shift that occurred in the 1920's. When completing this activity you'll need to identify any connections between the topics that you can. You'll need to look at: prohibition in Canada and branch plants in Canada; William Lyon Mackenzie King, the Halibut Treaty, the Chanak Affair, the Statute of Westminister and the King-Byng crisis; Aboriginal title and cut off lands (including Joe Capilano), racial segregation and immigration laws, Emily Murphy and the Person's Case; as well as the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, the US influence on Canadian culture.

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we will review the Star Trek: The Next Generation video from yesterday and explore the misconceptions that may have arisen when first contact occurred. We'll review the concept of worldview and then spend time examining the relationship that developed between the Aboriginal Peoples and both the North West Company and Hudson's Bay Company on the Canadian Prairies. When we finish our notes you'll need to work on a compare/contrast chart of the two fur trading companies as well as question 2 from page 135 of the Horizons text.

D Block Criminology 12 - Welcome to Criminology 12. Today we will go through the course outline package and see what crimes we have in store for the next two months. After we finish looking at the outline, I have two questions that I'd like you to brainstorm:

What is the purpose of laws and what is a crime ?
Why do people commit crime?

After a few minutes I'd like you to partner up and get your ideas on a large sheet of paper to share with the class. We'll try to make sense of your ideas and will continue this through tomorrow. This will lead us into an exploration of criminological theory.
