Wednesday, June 4. 2014

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

B Block Geography 12 - Today you have a unit final on weather and if you came prepared, I am certain that you will have done well...No problems! I am certain that you will do well on this test as you've shown me that you can read and interpret a weather map with greater ability than most news "weather forecasters". The test will take the whole block, however if you finish early in the time remaining after the test you may work on your Okanagan Valley topographic map assignment that we began on Monday. Good luck.

A Block Social Studies 11 - Seeing as though we didn't get to it on Monday due to our discussion of Superpowers using the Freedom and Commie Unicorns? "Pew Pew Pew..." and "Duck and Cover", 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 Turdeau'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.

Today I'd like you to add the following definitions to your work from Monday: CIDA, la Francophonie, SALT, SDI, FIRA, FTA, NAFTA, Glasnost, and Perestroika. 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.

C Block Law 9/10 - Today we are going to start with our third quiz on the course (focusing on crime scene investigation and the forensic scientists in the lab and the work they do to solve crimes). After, as a class, we'll go over R. v. Mac (1995) and R. v. Harricharan (1995). Then, you will be responsible for working on the case questions from R. v. Thornton (1990) q 1-4 p.70 ( Main Question: Did Thornton have a legal duty arising out of the common-law to inform the Red Cross of his HIV status?) and R. v. Sansregret (1985) q 1-6 p.72 (Main Question: Is willful blindness relevant to a mistake of fact in consent in a sexual assault charge?)
