D Block Law 12 - Hey just a reminder that you have a test tomorrow (Chapters 4, 7 and 8) and I reviewed the work with you yesterday...please prepare. Today in Law we'll start looking at arrests and warrants in Canada. Our focus will be on the options police have if they believe a suspect has committed a crime. We'll talk about appearance notices & arrests (both warrantless and warrant arrests) and we'll also talk about the duties of police officers. I'll have you work on questions 3 & 5 on page 149 and questions 2 & 4 on page 154 of the All About Law text.

A Block Law 9/10 - Today we are back in the library for our last project of the year...your Fairy Tale Criminal Code Case Study. Remember, you are a court reporter at a criminal trial involving a fairy tale. Your job during the case is to accurately report the case to your readers. Your story will summarize the events leading to the trial (the story), what the person is being charged with, who testified and to what for the Crown, who testified and to what for the defense including what was the basis for their defense, and finally what the judge’s decision was and why.

Required items:
  1. Summary of the facts – Summarize the fairy tale that you are using.
  2. Crown’s case – Lawyer’s opening statement which includes what the defendant is being charged with (Use the criminal code and/or your textbook to find the offence and record the Section and the number), what penalty they are asking for, and who testified (Minimum of three (3) witnesses including the victim assuming they are alive) along with testimony of each witness.
  3. Defense’s case – Lawyer’s opening statement including what is his/her client’s defense will be and who will be testifying (Minimum of three (3) witnesses including the defendant) along with the Testimony of each witness
  4. The judge's decision - Is the defendant guilty as charged? guilty of a lesser offense? or not guilty at all? What sentence will be given if necessary (the Criminal Code outlines minimum and maximum sentences)? Give the reasons for the decision made, why did the judge make the decision that they did?

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today we are going to continue our editorial cartoon work. Your cartoons are due Monday in class so it would be wise to spend today's class time in a productive and useful other words get it done. Some help:

For your Pro/Anti Confederation cartoon consider
  1. context — the circumstances in which it was created (imagine it is 1865 or 1866 in the Atlantic colony you've selected)
  2. content — the details of what it shows (how will you convey your message of pro or anti confederation)
  3. target — who or what it is directed at (colonists or politicians)
  4. style — how it presents the content, through images, words and humour which taken together determine its
  5. message — the key point it is trying to make, or the idea it is putting forward. 
and remember:
  1. symbolism - using an object to stand for an idea
  2. captioning and labels - used for clarity and emphasis
  3. analogy - a comparison between two unlike things that share some characteristics
  4. irony - the difference between the way things are and the way things should be or the way things are expected to be
  5. exaggeration or characture - overstating or magnifying a problem or a physical feature or habit: big nose, bushy eyebrows, large ears, baldness
