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

D 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

A Block Social Studies 11 - The Treaty of Versailles work is due today at the end of class. I'll give you a quick review for the unit final in class today and you should begin studying for it as it will be tomorrow (April 16th). Although the cost in lives was great, the First World War helped transform Canada into a modern industrial nation with international standing. So, in order to assess and explain the Political, Economic, Social and Cultural changes to Canada, from the outset to the end of the First World War, I`d like you to answer the following question: What effect did Canada’s participation in the First World War have on Canadian society and its status as a nation?
The Canadian War Museum has a very good online exhibit of Canada in World War One - here.

B Block Geography 12 - Today we're continuing our look at water by focusing on coastal processes and landforms. We will look at how water erodes, shapes, and creates coastal landscapes by focusing on long shore current & drift. We'll analyze the differences between an erosional and depositional coastline and try to make sense of the hazards of living along depositional coastlines (think Cape Hatteras, North Carolina). For additional information and help on questions 8, 11, 13, & 14 in your Geosystems text go to:
Cerritos College Earth Science Coast Landforms
University of Regina Geomorphology Class notes
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Geomorphology from space site
USGS Coastal & Marine Geology program
NOAA: Pressures on Coastal Environments

There's a great article on the dangers of people moving to coastlines at EARTH magazine here.

There's a great web page on the Graveyard of the Atlantic: Sable Island Nova Scotia. Check out more on Sable Island here.

You can also find some very good before-after photos of the destruction caused to coastal landforms and human infrastructure by Hurricane Sandy at the CBC here or the Weather Channel here
