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

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll watch the Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit episode "Closure" This episode deals with the short and long-term effects of a sexual assault on a victim.

From "Benson does her best to help a rape victim who is able to describe her attack in perfect detail, yet unable to properly identify her attacker when push comes to shove. When the detectives revisit the case a few months later, they find the woman even less willing to talk about what happened, as she claims she has moved on."

I want you to think hard during this episode and pay careful attention to what happens with Harper's character. What are the short and long term impacts on victims of Crime? Use Harper in the Law & Order episode you watched today and Chapter 3 pages 51-4 in CRIM textbook to help. This will form the basis of your blog entry on Monday. 

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today is your Confederation and Manitoba history test. You have the whole block to use for the test (although realistically you'll only need 45 minutes). If there's time left we'll look at BC but I think realistically we'll get to that on Monday. Your first order of business is to relax, breathe deep and dazzle me with what you know.

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we'll finish the Dateline "My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger" show. Remember I'd like you to answer the following:
  1. What do you think the purpose of the "My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger" show and what assumptions or beliefs do its creators have that are reflected in the content?
  2. Who and what is shown in a positive light? In a negative light? Why might these people and things be shown this way? What conclusions might audiences draw based on these facts?
  3. What techniques does the Dateline show use to get your attention and to communicate its message?
If there's time we'll watch a Criminal Minds episode called What Fresh Hell (Season 1 Episode 12). This connects to the Dateline Stranger Danger show...From

When a young girl is abducted in broad daylight from a playground in a seemingly safe neighborhood, the BAU initially believes her father is responsible. When he is able to provide an alibi, the team is forced to look for clues near where the girl lives to determine who is really responsible

D Block Law 12 - We didn't get to it yesterday so we'll start today by taking a look @ the main differences between civil and criminal law . On Monday you'll get your final project for the year. You can find more on the differences between criminal and civil law at: Diffen or OttoGraph For the remaining time left in the class you can ask any final questions you may have of criminal law or may ask any questions about civil law.
