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

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we'll continue the work I assigned yesterday on the Indian Act and the Numbered Treaties on the Canadian Prairies (questions 1 & 2 from page 173 along with questions 1, 2, and 3 from page 180 of the Horizons text). After a bit, we'll begin looking at the Northwest Rebellion of 1885 and the implications of the railway and the results for Macdonald, Riel and the Metis. For more on the Northwest Rebellion and Louis Riel look at:

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll start with our theories quiz. After we'll finish watching the Law & Order: Criminal Intent episode we started on Friday - "Jones" about a psychopathic killer. Given the episode we just watched, we will then focus on the roots of violent crime today. Where does violence come from (personal traits, ineffective families, evolutionary factors, exposure to violence, cultural values, substance abuse, and firearm availability)? For homework tonight I would like you brainstorm a list of all the entertainment you can think of that is based in violence. Think of video games (HALO), television programs (CSI), books (30 Days of Night comics), movies (Saw), music (ONYX, Biggie, Megadeath, Anthrax, Slayer), sports (MMA, WWE), and other forms of entertainment. Take some time and scan through the TV channels tonight (yep watch TV for homework).

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll start with out 1920's & 1930's Quiz. We'll mark the multiple choice and matching sections together and then we'll begin our look at the steps to world war two and Canada's response. We'll review your work on the rise of dictators and then we'll examine German aggression in terms of European politics. Next we'll look at isolation and appeasement along with Canada's declaration of war. I'll show you some archival footage from Germany and then you'll need to work on questions 2, 3, and 5 from page 98 along with questions 1 through 4 on page 105 of the Counterpoints text.
