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

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today to start the class we'll take a few minutes to finish the Leverage episode "the 12 Step Job" that we started last Thursday. After we'll look at an episode of Lie to Me from Season 1 (Moral Waiver). In the episode, Cal and Ria investigate the case of a female soldier who claims to be the victim of sexual assault by her commanding officer. At the same time, Gillian and Eli work on the case of a college basketball player who is accused of accepting a bribe from his university. The purpose of this is to help you think more about and answer:

Why do you think there is a trend in crime media involving the inadequecies of the police? Look at Elementary, Lie to Me, the Mentalist, Person of Interest Leverage, and the Dateline episodes to Catch a Predator or to Catch a Con Man. Each one of these shows involves a private consultant or specialist that helps the police solve their crimes that they apparently cannot solve on their own. What subtle or overt messages about policing and authority do these shows portray? Why do you think this is a popular trend in crime media?

D Block Law 12 - I have the notebooks booked for today and tomorrow for you to finish your work on the major civil law project you've been working on all term. Three of you have handed in the assignment (thank you) and if you're done then you may prepare for Wednesday and Thursday's final exam.

A Block Criminology 12 - Today I'll have you present your criminology topics for our seminar presentations and I sincerely look forward to what you found interesting about Criminology. Best of luck. Don't forget that you have a final quiz on White Collar and Property Crime tomorrow. If you are interested UFV, VIU and SFU (including the CrimOne first year expertience program @ SFU Surrey) offer Criminology degrees here in British Columbia. You can also find Criminology diploma programs at Douglas College, North Island College (here in the Comox Valley) and Kwantlen Polytechnic University. You can also find programs on policing and criminal justice at the Justice Institute of BC.

B Block Social Studies 10 - Thank you to Alexis, Holly and Jon for volunteering to go first yesterday. You have family heritage assignments to present today, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week. I have the notebooks available for you if you need them to present and I'll ask for volunteers rather than voluntolds to present today. I look forward to see where your family falls in the history of Canada that we've looked at this year
