Tuesday, April 8. 2014

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

D Block Social Studies 10 - Today we are going to wrap up our work on the 1837-8 Rebellions in Canada by focusing on responsible government in 1848. We'll look at the arrival of Lord Elgin (1847) and discover why the Rebellion Losses Bill was so controversial yet so important. We'll look at the Corn Laws passed by Britain in 1846 and see the impact that made on the Canadian economy. I'll have you work on questions 1, 3, and 4 from page 104 of the Horizons textbook and then you may work on your rebellions editorial in the library if needed.

A Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll continue with our look at Canada's involvement in World War One. Wednesday we'll focus on 1917 (Vimy, Passchendaele, Conscription, Women's Enfranchisement, Russian Revolution and the US entry into the war) and then the Paris Peace Conferences and the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. Today, I'll have you watch the Canada: A People's History episode "Go Out and Meet Death Bravely" along with the Crash Course movie below: "Archdukes, Cynicism, and World War 1". After you can finish the chart that you started yesterday which was to briefly explain each battle, identify Canada's role in them, and explain the results (impact). Don't forget to use the resources from yesterday's post for Ypres (2nd Battle), Somme, Vimy, and Passchendaele (3rd Battle of Ypres). Lastly I'll have you work on questions 1, 2, and 3 from page 39 and question 5 from page 47 of the Counterpoints textbook.

B Block Geography 12 -  Today we're back in the library for our next class day to work on our Mass Wasting pamphlet and you can find the assignment on yesterday's blog entry. Friday is the last day that I can give you for this assignment as the library is booked solid so you'll need to do some research on your own. This assignment is due next Monday (April14th) and I'd like you to submit it digitally to me. Please save your document as a publisher file (.pub), a word file (.docx), or an adobe file (.pdf) and e-mail it to my school mail address...Thanks. Here are some websites to help...
