Thursday, June 6. 2013

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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll finish watching the first sections of the movie "The Corporation" and you will need to work on the following questions:

  1. Should corporate executives be found guilty of murder if they fail to take reasonable measures to protect their staff and an employee subsequently dies?
  2. Is it fair to blame a single executive for the activities of a company that has thousands of employees?
  3. Can Corporations Commit Murder? If a corporation is considered as a person in law (as it is in the US) who can be held liable (responsible) if a corporation kills people?  
C Block Social Studies 10 - Today you are in the class with the netbooks for your second day of research on the Economy of BC assignment. From the Coast Forest Products Association website:

British Columbia is a province with an increasingly urban-based population whose economic success has historically been tied to the efficient extraction, processing and exporting of commodities.  In 2011, approximately four-fifths of B.C.’s international merchandise exports consisted of goods produced by the forestry, energy, mining and agri-food industries taken as a group.  This proportion is little changed from ten years ago, and it is substantially higher than the share of resource-based goods in overall Canadian merchandise exports.

Take a look at yesterday's blog entry for an explanation of the assignment and the links below should help as well.

B Block Social Studies 11 -  Today we'll watch the Canada: A People's History episodes: “A Question of Equality” and “A Most Fundamental Choice” (which deal with the women's movement in Canada) and “Taking Back the Past”(which deals with the Aboriginal Nations rights movement). I'll have you finish the Challenging the Status Quo grid (use pages 177 to 181 and pages 208 to 210 of the Counterpoints textbook) that I gave you yesterday and then we'll look at the CBC, the Massey Commission and the CRTC, Medicare, social welfare programs, changes to immigration in Canada, the points system and multiculturalism (basically the major shift in Canadian culture from the 1950's through to the 1980's).
