Thursday, May 30. 2013

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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll focus our efforts at the beginning of class on auto theft. We'll examine the five types of motor vehicle theft and identify how you can protect your vehicle from being stolen (target hardening strategies). After that we'll look at burglary & Break and Enter. You'll need to answer the following from yesterday:

What are the differences between a professional and an occasional thief?
What is a "situational inducement"?
What is a "Booster", a "Heel", a "Snitch", a "Fence"?

And then then this question from today:

What characteristics must a good burglar have? (Look at Neil Shover's explanation on page 234-237) and What are the differences between male and female burglars?

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today you have your Western History unit final test. If you studied and are prepared then I'm certain you will do fine. If there's time, we will mark the first two sections of the test together in class. You do have a project to hand in to me on Monday. It is crucial that you get your Canadian Pacific Railway book handed in to me. If, for some reason, you cannot get your assignment in to me Monday you must come and talk with me to avoid a zero. Considering this is a major project I hope you realize the importance of its completion. Good Luck on the test today.

B Block Social Studies 11 -  Today you have your World War Two unit final quiz. We'll mark the first two sections in class and then you will be working on a "Cold War Flashpoints" activity where you'll analyze the following four conflicts through a W5H approach: Korean War, Vietnam War, Suez Crisis, and the Cuban Missile Crisis. You'll have the next two classes to work on this and you'll have a few handouts to help. NOTE: W5H = Who (countries & people) was involved; What happened during the conflict; When did the conflict take place; Where did the conflict break out and spread to; Why did the conflict occur; and How was Canada involved and affected by the conflict.

We'll examine the Canadian involvement in the Korean War (from Vetrans Affairs Canada...The year is 1950. The Second World War is over. The United Nations has been in place for just five years, and is working to promote global peace and security. Canada is brimming with optimism as Canadians look forward to a prosperous and peaceful second half of the 20th century. Suddenly, an international crisis is brewing in the Korean peninsula and people, the world over, are holding their collective breath. What happens next is history).

We'll then look at Lester B. Pearson the Suez Crisis and the creation of the UNEF (from the Dominion Institute Project...Although Canada had no direct economic, military or political stake in the crisis, Canadian Foreign Minister Lester Pearson became a front line player at the United Nations. Working intensely from the end of October into early November 1956, Pearson proposed the world’s first ever peacekeeping force at the UN General Assembly. Using his vast web of connections and decades of experience, he persuaded the world assembly to make the UN force a reality).

Next we'll look at the Cuban Missile Crisis (from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum...For thirteen days, the world waited, hoping for a peaceful resolution to the crisis. No one was sure how the Soviet leader would respond to the naval blockade and U.S. demands. Recognizing the devastating possibility of a nuclear war, Khrushchev turned his ships back. The Soviets agreed to dismantle the weapon sites and, in exchange, the United States agreed not to invade Cuba).

Last we'll look at the Vietnam War (from American Experience...
in 1964 president Lyndon B. Johnson has the Gulf of Tonkin resolution passed that allows the US to "take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression." The Resolution allows Johnson to wage all out war against North Vietnam without ever securing a formal Declaration of War from Congress). CBC has a good site dedicated to Canadian involvement in the war and you can find it HERE.
