Tuesday, April 9. 2013

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

C Block Social Studies 10 - Yesterday we looked at the first three (of six) causes for Canadian Confederation: war and expansionism in the U.S.; Fenians; and trade/economic problems. Today we'll look at transportation problems (railways); the Little Englander movement in the U.K.; and double majorities and political deadlock (in the Canadas).   I'll have you work on a pro/con chart for Confederation and I'll also have you work on questions 3 & 5 from page 108 of the Horizons textbook.

A Block Law 9/10 - We had the library booked for us yesterday to work on our Forensic Science webpage project and will have Wednesday and Friday in the library as well. Today, in class, we will focus on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. As a class, we'll work on the R. v. Macooh (1993) case, questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 on page 91 and then I'll have you work on questions 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 on page 97 of your All About Law text.

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we start by reviewing 1917 - a crucial year in the First World War (Don't forget we already know about Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele). We will take a look at the crisis surrounding conscription (Military Service Act) and see how that issue divided Canada. We'll also look at the Suffragette movement (Nellie McClung) and the Wartime Elections Act of 1917 that was tied to the Military Voters Act. You'll get three supplemental hand-outs today: "The Conscription Crisis"; "A Country Divided the conscription crisis"; and "The Suffrage Movement women get the vote". Using the handouts, you'll need to work on a casualty / enlistment graph for 1917 in class and work through questions 1 & 3 on page 39 and 1 & 4 on page 42 in your Counterpoints text along with the Reconnect questions 1 & 2 on the handout "The Conscription Crisis".
