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

B Block Law 12 - At the beginning of class today, I'll give you time to work on yesterday's questions 1-5 from page 78 of the All About Law text about pay and work equity. After you may work on your Human Rights poster.

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today I'd like you to use all of the geographic work we've looked at, as well as the text, and try to answer the following:

"How has Geography shaped the culture of Canada?"

This is a big question and I really want you to try hard to think like a geographer here. Thinking like a geographer is thinking spatially in a systems manner. This involves looking for patterns, relationships and connections in order to comprehend large, complex self regulating systems. So what patterns, relationships and connections exist between people and places that help to shape Canada today?

When you are finished you should prepare for tomorrow's unit final test

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we start with our first quiz in the course...RELAX I'm sure you'll do fine. There is a bonus question for you should you choose to complete it is on the last page of the quiz :) After we'll try to understand what a victim of crime is. For the first part of the class we'll discuss victims of crime and victimology. We'll look at the Holly Jones murder case in Toronto (2003) and the Victoria 'Tori' Stafford murder case in Woodstock (2009) to try to find out what impact that would have on their families, their classmates at school, their neighbourhood, and really the entire greater Toronto metropolitan area.
