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

D Block Law 12 - Today we'll work on our case study project in class with the notebooks and if push comes to shove we'll watch the second half of the Hot Coffee documentary.

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we'll watch the Law & Order Special Victims Unit episode "Selfish". From the Law & Order Wiki:

When it is reported by Ruth Walker that her two-year-old granddaughter, Sierra Walker, is missing Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler investigate. After rounds of interrogation and a failed Amber Alert, Benson and Stabler believe that the prime suspect is none other than Sierra's young and irresponsible mother, Ashlee Walker.

Yes, we've done Casey Anthony all week and this episode is clearly based on the Casey Anthony case. From the Business Insider During the tenth season of Law & Order: SVU, the show's nineteenth episode featured a young mother accused of killing her child so that she can party more. In the real-life version of the crime, Anthony was accused in 2008 of murdering her daughter Caylee. Police initially became suspicious of Anthony after she waited a month to report Caylee's disappearance. The television episode mirrored the real-life saga in more ways than one. In both cases, a grandma reported the young girl's disappearance and complained the mother's car smelled like a dead body. And both the TV mother and Anthony left their daughters with secondary caregivers and then blamed the babysitter for the disappearance.

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today you may finish your work on Louis Riel (questions 2, 4, and 5 on page 189 as well as the Apply It question 1 from the "Developing Historical Perspective" skill builder on pages 192-3 of the Horizons text).

A Block Criminology 12 - We'll watch a Criminal Minds episode today "The Aftermath". The BAU (Behavioural Analysis Unit) investigates a serial rapist who had been attacking young women at religious schools and stopped for six weeks. He has resumed his attacks, but is now targeting a different demographic of women. We'll try to understand what type of sexual assaulter the unsub is and unpack his motives.
