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

A Block Social Studies 11 - I'll have you work on questions 1-3 on page 303 dealing with the Abrams v. Doug Collins & North Shore Free Press Ltd. (1996) B.C. human rights tribunal case (you don't have to write a letter just state your opinion and back it up with sound charter and legal reasoning). Just a reminder that there will be speeches tomorrow. You'll need to explain your party platform and try to convince some savvy voters as to why they should choose your party to run room 611. I do like the campaign visuals around our riding (room 611) and the social media platforms you've created for your parties...Good Luck..

B Block Geography 12 - Today we'll take the class to work on the Koko Head (Hawai'i Kai) topographic map assignment in your Canadian Landscape topographic map textbook.

  1. Study topographic map 1 and describe the relief from west to east across the upper half of the map a) what is the length and width (in kilometers) of the map? What is the total area (in kilometers squared) b) Determine the road distance (in kilometers) from BM16 in Hawaii Kai to the park in the northeast. What do you think is the significance of the white area crossed by Lunalilo Home Road? c) Determine the road distance (in kilometers) from Holy Trinity School near Kuliouou to Halona Point. Suggest some factors that posed difficulties for the construction of State Highway 72.
  2. On map 1 and Photo 3 locate and name three other craters in Koko Head Park. How are they indicated on the map? How do they compare in size relative to Koko crater? Does Hanauma Bay qualify as a caldera and if so, why?
  3. Identify the features labelled A to E on stereo photo 3. a) What indicates that Koko crater has been inactive for some time? b) What is the area (in kilometers squared) of Hanauma Bay? What do you think makes it an interesting site for an underwater park?
  4. From a study of both the map and the photos, suggest how the settlement pattern has been influenced by topography a) How has this pattern influenced population density in localized areas? b) How has the topography created problems for highway planning? Why might traffic congestion be a problem along the shoreline highway?

D Block Social Studies 10 - So today we'll continue our grade 9 review from friday. From grade 9 I hope you remember the "Seven Years War" (also known as the "French and Indian War" in the U.S.A. and "La Guerre de la ConquĂȘte" in Quebec). I hope you remember the impact of the Treaty of Paris in 1763 on "British North America", the effects of the Quebec Act of 1774, and the American War of Independence. I hope you remember the United Empire Loyalists and the creation of Upper Canada in 1791. Lastly I hope you remember Tecumseh, Brock, Secord and the War of 1812.
After, I will ask you to brainstorm two questions...What is a rebellion and Why do rebellions happen? After a brief yet I'm quite certain brilliant discussion I'd like you to define the following: Family Compact, United Empire Loyalist, Clergy Reserves, Assembly, and Governor. I'll have you work on the two questions on the "Get to the Source: The Family Compact" section on page 53 of Horizons and we'll finish by looking at Clergy and Crown Reserves in Upper Canada.
