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

D Block Law 12 - Today we'll start by talking about searches and warrants. I'll go through a "Valid/Invalid" search activity with you and then we'll watch an episode of Law & Order from season 10 called "Mother's Milk". In the episode "bloodstains in an apartment that belonged to a young couple with a baby leads to the separated parents, each of whom claims that the other has the infant". Think about warrants and searches when the detectives are searching for the Beltran baby. Also I'd like you to pay attention to the examination that ADA Abby Carmichael has of witnesses on the stand during trial (as a preview for the trial unit next week). I'll stop the episode right before the decision and have you tell me what you'd decide if you were the presiding judge in the case.

C Block Criminology 12 - Welcome to Criminology 12. Today we will go through the course outline package and see what crimes we have in store for the next two months. In this course we look at crime theories and crime typology. The first three weeks of the course sees us look at a general history of crime, big ideas about why people commit crime and thoughts on why people become victims of crime. The main portion of the class then focuses on crime typologies: violent crimes; property crimes; white collar/enterprise/business crimes; organized/gang crimes; and crimes of a social nature (gambling, drug use, sex trade). Each week we spend Monday in the library working on an on-line crime blog while each Friday we'll watch an episode of of CSI, Law & Order, Cold Case Files, Millennium, Criminal Minds, or Forensic Files (but there's always a question about what you watch).

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today you'll have the class to finish your Confederation timelines that you began in yesterday's class. You will need to submit these by the beginning of Tuesday's class. On Tuesday we'll talk about worldview and discuss first contact between European fur traders and the Aboriginal peoples of the Canadian prairies.

A Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Welcome to Crime Media and Society 12. Today we will go through the course outline package and see what topics we have in store for the next three months. After we finish looking at the outline, I have one question that I'd like you to think about in partners, "Should we be worried about the amount of crime in Canada?" For the rest of the class here's what I'd like to talk about...what are your earliest memories about watching crime on TV? Was it the news, a police proceedural or was it something like this?
