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

D Block Criminology 12 -  Today we'll start with a brief history of criminology (from B.C.E up to and including the current theories). For Monday, you need to create your own theory of why crime happens. Remember you need to use the brainstormed list we did in class along with the notes you take today on the history of Criminology. Use the Crime Theory Web Site found on this link. To start next week, we'll look at the difference between deviance and criminal behaviour (acts that are criminal but not deviant and deviant but not criminal) and the three views on crime (interactionist, consensus, conflict).

C & A Blocks Social Studies 10 - I'd like to work on map symbols, relief and contours. You'll need to work through the following:

1. Page 20 questions 1, 2, and 3
2. Page 21 questions 1 and 2

The Natural Resources Canada website Toporama is a great resource to understand topographic map basics. Check out their Tips and Hints site here. There is a good tutorial on building topographic profiles on the Idaho State University Department of Geosciences website here. There's also a great tutorial here as well. If there's time we'll go through what the Five Themes of Geography are (part of the map conventions handout that you got this week). For help with your map making on page 21 us the following link: Topographic Map Symbols

B Block Law 12 - Today we will continue our Introduction to Law unit by quickly reviewing Hammurabi, Mosaic law, Common law, Precedent and Case law. We'll work on understanding case citations (R. v. Kerr, 2004, and Grant v. Dempsey, 2001). We'll discuss the "rule of law" and quickly review the Social Studies 11 topics of our constitution and how laws are made. I'll have you work on questions from page 21 of the All About Law textbook: Question 2 How did the English common law system develop? Question 3 How is the rule of precedent used in today’s system of law? and Question 5 Explain the significance of statute law as a source of law? For more on how to read case studies check out:
