Monday, November 24. 2014

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

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today we will finish the Star Trek: The Next Generation video from Friday and explore the misconceptions that may have arisen when first contact occurred. We'll review the concept of worldview and then spend time examining the relationship that developed between the Aboriginal Peoples and both the North West Company and Hudson's Bay Company on the Canadian Prairies. When we finish our notes you'll need to work on a compare/contrast chart of the two fur trading companies as well as question 2 from page 135 of the Horizons text.

B Block Law 12 - Hey just a reminder that you have a test on Wednesday (Chapters 4, 7 and 8) and I'll review the work with you today...please prepare. Today in Law we'll start looking at arrests and warrants in Canada. Our focus will be on the options police have if they believe a suspect has committed a crime. We'll talk about appearance notices & arrests (both warrantless and warrant arrests) and we'll also talk about the duties of police officers. I'll have you work on questions 3 & 5 on page 149 and questions 2 & 4 on page 154 of the All About Law text.

D Block Law 9/10 - Welcome to Introduction to Law, also known as Law & Order: Vanier and sometimes known as CSI: Vanier. This term class is a very short but exciting look at criminal law in Canada. The course is organized much like an episode of Law & Order. The first two weeks of the course deal with criminological studies (the study of crime - we will focus on why crime is committed). The next month of the class deals with criminal forensics and detective investigation. The last three weeks of the class deal with the "order" component of Law & Order where we'll follow the process of arrest, trial, and sentencing for crimes committed. Each week we spend Monday in the library either doing some research on a specific topic or preparing our major project. We also spend each Friday watching an episode of CSI, Law & Order, Cold Case Files, Millennium, Criminal Minds, or Forensic Files (but there's always a question about what you watch). Today, I want you to brainstorm a list of all the reasons you can think why someone would commit a crime and we'll collect all of your ideas on the board for a discussion. We'll cluster your reasons why people commit crime into categories and see what biological factors and sociological factors may contribute to crime.
