Thursday, December 4. 2014

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

D Block Law 9/10 - Today we will start with our first quiz in the course then we'll continue looking at profiling and begin to understand what a psychopath is. Dr. Robert Hare of the University of British Columbia created a checklist called the PCL-R (Psychopathy Checklist Revised). Yesterday we examined the "Unholy Trinity" of serial killer characteristics and today we'll finish our video on how profiling was developed in the F.B.I. Behavioural Science Unit (through the efforts of many highlighted by the work of John Douglas) today. The first part of the video focuses on Wayne Williams and then looks at Robert Hansen. Don't forget that in Canada the R.C.M.P. call the technique criminal investigative analysis.  This will help us with tomorrow's project on serial killers...more on that tomorrow.

C & A Block Social Studies 10 - Yesterday we looked at governor Douglas and discussed the Oregon Territory and the boundary dispute that led to the 49th Parallel declared as the international border between Canada and the United States of America (oh poor Point Roberts). Today we'll look at Fort Victoria (1843) as well as the establishment of Vancouver Island as a colony (1849). I'll have you work on the Douglas Treaties "Get to the Source" activity questions along with question 2 from the bottom of page 212 in the Horizons text.

B Block Law 12 - Today in Law we'll examine the court room and we'll look at the three court levels in BC (Provincial, Supreme, and Appellate). After, we'll focus on courtroom organization and then we'll discuss the roles and responsibilities of the judge, the crown prosecutor, defense counsel, the court clerk, court recorder, and sheriff. Next we'll look at the advantages of trial by jury and understand the methods and challenges to jury selection. After we'll focus on the presentation of evidence (Crown first then Defence), the rules of evidence (including voire dire), and types of evidence (circumstantial, hearsay, privileged, and character). I'll have you work on questions 1, 2 and 4 from page 200 as well as questions 1, 2 and 3 from page 207 of the All About Law text. For more on juries in BC check out Justice BC - What is Jury Duty?
