Thursday, September 19. 2013

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

D Block Law 12 - Today we'll get to what we didn't get to yesterday...I'd like you to work on question 3 from page 46 which deals with the R. v. Keegstra (1990) and R. v. Butler (1992) cases (I'll talk more about those in class today). After, we will continue our look at the legal rights we have here in Canada. We'll go through sections 7 - 14 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (legal rights section). We'll look at two cases: Rodriguez v British Columbia (Attorney General), 1993 - which deals with Section 7 of the Charter (life, liberty and security of the person) and R. v. Tessling, 2004 - which deals with Section 8 of the Charter (search and seizure). I'll have you work on the following questions: page 54 q 1-3; page 56 q 1, 2 and 4; and page 60 question 1.

For more information on the fight in Canada for the right to die on one's own terms look at the CBC In Depth site on the Sue Rodriguez case. In 2011, Gloria Taylor from Kelowna filed a case in B.C. Supreme Court to grant her the right to a doctor-assisted suicide. More info on this case can be found here.

C Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll get to what we didn't get to yesterday...I'’d like you to read through the "Nature of Victimization" on pages 53-5 and 57-58  and "Theories of Victimization" dealing with Victim Precipitation, Lifestyle, and Routine Activities on pages 59-62 in the CRIM text. After discussing these sections your job will be to complete the following:

1. Briefly outline and explain the patterns we've identified in victimization (social ecology, household, personal characteristics and repeat victimization)
2. Explain and compare the three theories of crime victimization (as a comparison chart or Venn diagram) and
3. Do you agree with the premise that school is one of the most dangerous places for young people? Why or Why not.

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today is the last day in the classroom for work on our Physiographic Regions of Canada project. The assignment sheet can be found in the K Drive on the computers at school (K:\Mr. A. Young\Social Studies 10) and it's titled "ss10 physio proj.pdf". Please use your time wisely as you only have today in the class and then both Friday and Monday in the library...after that if you need computer time it will have to be on your own. I will take the physical geography regions books back to the library tomorrow and you may sign them out if you wish. This assignment is due a week from tomorrow (Friday September 27th) and I will have poster paper available for you if you've decided to complete a poster for this assignment. Work Hard and Good Luck.

A Block Law 9/10 -  This is it...the last day for research or compilation. We have the library booked in order to continue work on our serial killer research activity which is due next Monday in class. If you have completed the research for this assignment then you can print off your work and start to assemble your poster. Either way...this is it so use your time wisely.
