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

A Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll take a look at Canada's role in the post-Vietnam world in two sections - the Trudeau Era and the Mulroney Era. We'll examine Trudeau's attempt to forge a different path, one that moved Canada to a middle power in an attempt to bridge the North-South divide. After we'll look at the Mulroney era for Canada's involvement in the Cold War. We'll discuss the debt slashing policy of the Conservatives in the 1980's and touch on supply side economics and trickle down theory. After, we'll look at NAFTA and the Foreign Investment Review Agency. We'll also examine Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms in the Soviet Union and the eventual "collapse" of the Berlin Wall and the sphere of Soviet influence. After, we'll examine the dramatic changes to Canada's culture and identity as a result of the "baby boom" generation. We'll look at how the government tried to protect Canadian culture and the economy along with the development of both the environmental and woman's rights movements. You'll need to work on questions 2 and 4 from page 146, questions 2, 3, and 4 from page 150 and questions 2 & 3 from page 156 in the Counterpoints textbook today.

B Block Geography 12 - Today we will spend the entire class working on Okanagan Valley topographic map out of the Canadian Landscape Air Photo & Topographic Map textbook.
