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

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we will continue our look at crime scene investigation and we'll look at ballistics, fibres and the collection and processing of DNA evidence. Together as a class, we will work through the Rookie Training simulation on the Rice University's CSI: The Experience Web Adventure . We'll do the training for Forensic Biology (DNA), Toxicology, Firearms and Toolmarks (Ballistics), Medical Examiner (Pathologist) and CSI Ethics.

B Block Geography 12 - We'll spend the class finishing our review of hurricanes. We’ll start with the Raging Planet Hurricane episode (Raging Planet: Hurricane (2009) - Part 1 by bigcenterprises.). I hope that through my stories and the actual footage of the catastrophe you can start to understand the human component to natural disasters. After we’ll take a brief look at climatology and climate types on the planet, making sense of the Koppen climate classification system.

A Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll continue our look at the Holocaust in World War Two. The United States Holocaust Memorial/Museum has a very good website dedicated to teaching the public about the Holocaust and we'll use it to help us understand. I'll show you the second section of Schindler's List, where a group of women are taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Hopefully we'll have some time to talk about the sections afterwards. We'll then talk about the end of the war in Europe (Ortona and D-Day) and switch our focus to the Pacific. If there's time, we'll look at the Manhattan Project and the use of nuclear weapons in Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki). This takes us to V-J Day and the end of World War Two.
