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

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we start to wrap up our look at Canadian confederation by focusing on and taking some notes about the reaction in the colonies to the decisions made in Quebec. We will see the problems Tilley faced in New Brunswick, Tupper faced in Nova Scotia, Cartier faced in Canada East and examine the reasons why P.E.I. and Newfoundland refused to join with the Canadas. When we finish this, you will begin work on an editorial cartoon for one of the Atlantic colonies (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, or Newfoundland) about Confederation. Look through the section in your textbook about the reaction in the colonies from the Quebec conference and the plan for Confederation. What did the colonies like or dislike the most about the plan? Who were the characters (Tilley, Tupper, Howe, and Pope in Atlantic Canada and Macdonald or Cartier for the Canadas)? Now read through what an editorial cartoon is on pages 98 & 99 of the text (Skill Builder: Bias in the News) and pages 366 & 367 of the text (Skill: Analyzing Images). Now use all that you've learned and create an editorial cartoon for one of the Atlantic colonies that is either pro (for) or anti (against) Confederation.

A Block Law 9/10 - On Tuesday we continued our look at criminal law procedures and focusing on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. Today, I'll have you work on questions 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 on page 91 of your All About Law text. After a bit we'll look at warrants through both the  R. v. Wise (1992) and R. v. Ruiz (1991) cases along with the "plain view" principle. If there's time we'll also look at release procedures and habeas corpus along with disclosure, preliminary hearings, pre-trial motions, and plea bargaining.
