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

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today we'll finish up the grade 9 Social Studies review that we began in Friday's class. After, I will ask you to brainstorm two questions...What is a rebellion and Why do rebellions happen? After a brief yet I'm quite certain brilliant discussion I'd like you to define the following: Family Compact, United Empire Loyalist, Clergy Reserves, Assembly, and Governor. I'll have you work on the two questions on the "Get to the Source: The Family Compact" section on page 53 of Horizons and we'll finish by looking at Clergy and Crown Reserves in Upper Canada.

In case you forgot, here are some websites to help refresh your memory:
Seven Years War website
War of 1812 website
PBS War of 1812
Canadian Atlas OnLine War of 1812

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll start with a review for our intro unit test on Thursday (October 23rd, 2014). The unit test will cover the first three chapters of the All About Law text and will have: 15 True/False questions; 15 Multiple Choice questions; 15 Fill In the Blank questions; 15 Matching questions; and 7 Short Answer questions. Next we will discuss the difference between criminal and immoral behaviour (crime and deviance) and after that we're going to look at the types of criminal offenses (summary conviction, indictable, hybrid). You'll need to work on questions 1-5 on page 123. Here are some websites to help:

D Block Criminology 12 - Today your journal / blog entry is to post your response to Friday's question:

What are the short and long term impacts on victims of Crime? Use Harper in the Law & Order episode you watched on Friday and Chapter 3 pages 54-7 in CRIM textbook to help.

Next, I'd like you to find an article (news story) about a victim of crime and for that you should outline the impacts of the crime on them. Finally, using the two stories (one fictional and one real) explain what we should do to mitigate (soften the impact) the impacts of crime on victims (be realistic).
