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

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we're back in the library for you to continue your blog work. This new entry should be your third entry and I'd like you to find out as much information as you can about two notorous Canadian murderers... Clifford Robert Olson Jr. (Serial) and Marc L├ępine (Mass). For this assignment I'd like you to tell me what they did and why they did it....use Levin & Fox's typology of serial and mass murder to explain motives. Do not use Wikipedia as your source for this assignment use the links on the names above. Aside from answering what they did and why they did it, also try to answer what can we learn from their horrific actions and is it ever possible to stop people like this in Canada? Why or Why not?

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today we'll continue with our 'Ole Bill Coot storyboarding / cartoon assignment. The due date for this assignment is this Friday (December 13th). You should use the webpages from Tuesday's blog entry as well as your textbook for information to help. Don't forget there needs to be swashbucklin', claim jumpin', horse wrastlin', saloon drinkin', bar fightin', gun slingin', ladies dancin', and rootin tootin old timey western action in your cartoon. Here's an example of a western themed storyboard from the Advanced Computing Center of Arts and Design at the OSU.

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we're back in the library working on the collaborize classroom site. Now for today I'd like you to do two things:

  1. Finish your work on the Dateline "My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger" thread specifically the "Big Ideas connecting the two shows" question.
  2. Work on the Social Class and crime question connected to both the Law & Order Los Angeles episode we were supposed to watch last Friday (minus the snow day) and the People like Us PBS documentary below.

D Block Law 12 - Today we'll quickly take a second look at negligence and I'll go through Parker and James v. Douglas and Dratch (1998), which was quietly settled out of court, as well as McGuire v. N'Sync (2000) which was dropped by the Plaintiff. Listen to the words the Plaintiff's lawyers use in their filings to the court. After, I'll give you the rest of the class to work on your case study project...and check out Friday's blog post fpr information on the Good Samaritan Act.
