Monday, June 3. 2013

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

B Block Social Studies 11  - Today we'll take a look at Canada's role in the post-Vietnam world in two sections - the Trudeau Era and the Mulroney Era. We'll examine Turdeau's attempt to forge a different path, one that moved Canada to a middle power in an attempt to bridge the North-South divide. After we'll look at the Mulroney era for Canada's involvement in the Cold War. We'll discuss the debt slashing policy of the Conservatives in the 1980's and touch on supply side economics and trickle down theory.

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today your children's book about the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway is due; I look forward to reading them. We'll begin our work on the economy of Canada and specifically that of B.C. Today you'll need to begin an economic glossary for Social Studies 10. You need to define the following terms in your own words (and you can find most of them in Chapter 8 starting on page 282-3 of the Horizons text):
  1. business cycle
  2. capital (economic)
  3. Consumer Price Index (CPI)
  4. economic consumption
  5. economic demand
  6. economic market
  7. economic sector
  8. economic supply
  9. goods
  10. branch plants
  11. Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
  12. Gross National Product (GNP)
  13. heartland/hinterland
  14. non-renewable resource
  15. manufacturing based economy
  16. primary industry
  17. renewable resource
  18. resource based economy
  19. secondary industry
  20. services
  21. tertiary industry
  22. pre-Industrial (agricultural) society
  23. Industrial (mechanized) society
  24. post-Industrial (technological) society
Tomorrow we'll look at the economies of other regions in Canada and then turn our focus to B.C.

D Block Criminology 12 - Today your blog entry will be to discuss the qualities of a financially successful professional burglar. In your blog entry today, discuss why some burglars prefer to victimize commercial property rather than private homes. Note some of the major techniques for how burglars approach their jobs. Why would some burglars want to hit the same target more than once? How might a burglar develop the kind of skills needed to become lucrative in this career? (HINT: don't forget Shover's qualities of a good burglar here). Use the episode of Leverage that we watched on Friday to help you with this entry and find a real case of a career burglar to help as well.
