Wednesday, June 18. 2013

This is it...the last day of official classes. Today's schedule is B-AG-A-D-C

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll finish our look at the environmental issues that we face as Canadians in the context of the modern world. So, we'll examine climate change, ozone depletion, acid rain and potable (safe drinking) water. On Friday we watched the "Story of Stuff" which looked at our rates of consumption. Today we'll look to see the connection between consumption and environmental degradation of ecosystems. After we'll see if we can connect our look at population and living standards to this topic.

You write your Provincial Exam on Friday, June 21st from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.

Take heed the wisdom of Yoda...
"No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try!"
So study. I gave you a review and you should be using it to prepare for this Friday...that's a mere two days from now.

D Block Criminology 12 - Today I'll have you present your criminology topics for our seminar presentations and I sincerely look forward to what you found interesting about Criminology. Best of luck. If you are interested UFV, VIU and SFU (including the CrimOne first year expertience program @ SFU Surrey) offer Criminology degrees here in British Columbia. You can also find Criminology diploma programs at Douglas College, North Island College (here in the Comox Valley) and Kwantlen Polytechnic University. You can also find programs on policing and criminal justice at the Justice Institute of BC.

C Block Social Studies 10 - You have assignments due today...please do not give me any "My dog ate my homework" or "My computer crashed with all my work on it" excuses. You will present your family tree assignments today and I look forward to see where your family falls in the history of Canada that we've looked at this year.
