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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll turn our focus to the history of crime and law (looking at Hammurabi, the Mosaic Code and the development of Common Law in England). We'll learn what Actus Reus, Mens Rea, Mala in Se and Mala Prohibitum mean along with taking a look at the differences between Indictable, Summary Conviction and Absolute Liability Offences. We'll see what defenses you can use and what the goals of criminal law are for society. You'll need to work on question and then we'll discuss crime trends and how we tabulate crime statistics (UCR, PRVS, Self-Reports). The question at the end of the class is...

In order to stay safe from crime, would you want to live in a country that has harsh penalties that are swift, certain, and severe or would you be willing to risk crime being done to you and not have harsh penalties for criminals that are swift, certain, and severe? Why?

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we will continue with our look at Miles McDonnell and the Selkirk grant, the Pemmican Proclimation, Cuthbert Grant, Robert Semple and the battle of Seven Oaks. Yesterday I asked you to complete some work out of the text and today you have time to finish it; the questions were 1-4 on page 149. After a bit, we'll look at the Red River from 1820 - 1870 (just before the rise of Riel and the National Metis Committee).

B Block Social Studies 11 - You'll be in the library today where you'll finish your work on the five flash cards on Canadian personalities from the 1920’s. For this you'll need to choose a person from the list below and identify their accomplishments. The front half of the flash card should have a picture of them along with their name and the back half of the card should list out who they were, what they did and why they were important.
