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

C & A Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today, we'll look at the evolution of the two colonies (Vancouver Island and the mainland colony of British Columbia) up until they combined into one in 1866. After, we'll talk about the California Gold Rush (American River 1848-1849) and the discovery of gold on the Fraser River in 1858 (along with the Nlaka' pamux - Thompson River Salish - people and the "Fraser Canyon War" and "Ned McGowan's War" both challenges to Governor Douglas' control of the British Columbia mainland colony). Finally we'll look at Barkerville and the Cariboo Gold Rush. I'll have you work on questions 2, 3, 4, and 5 on page 219 of the Horizons text and this sets you up for your Ole' Bill Coot Storyboard comic project that we'll start Monday in class.

D Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll venture off to the library to begin work on a small project about nasty people. It will be your job to create a poster on a serial killer.

Select a criminal from the list below and discuss your selection with me to obtain approval to proceed with your research no later than Today. No more than two students may choose the same criminal and your selection of a criminal is on a first-come, first-served basis. Prepare a poster on your criminal that must include the following information:

1. Name of the criminal (including an image of them) along with any aliases they may have.
Summary (not details) of the crime(s) the criminal committed, with corresponding dates (year only) of the crimes.
2. Explain the type of victim that the criminal sought
3. Explain how the criminal was caught (by whom & how? What led to his/her capture?)
4. Indicate the criminal's background, childhood, method of committing the crime, and characteristics which cause the criminal to fit within the particular theory you selected.
5. State, define, and explain the criminological theory, (classical, biological, psychological, sociological, or integrated) which explains the criminal's behaviour
6. State which serial killer category the criminal is: mission-oriented, hedonistic, visionary, power/control, thrill killer, expedience killer; (and define whichever category you select)

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll start with a section of the CBC Fifth Estate documentary "The Unrepentant". We'll watch the real interview of Karla Homolka. After, we'll watch the Law & Order episode “Fools for Love” (season 10, episode 15). This episode is based on the Leslie Mahaffy, Kristen French, and Tammy Homolka cases. All three were victims of Canada's own "Ken and Barbie killers", Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. Bernardo was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in the murder of Tammy Homolka (Karla's sister) and the kidnappings/murders of French and Mahaffey, and Karla Homolka accepted a ten-year plea bargain for her roles that was later upgraded to a twelve-year plea bargain. Homolka was released on July 4, 2005, and has opted to live under the name Karla Teale (Bernardo and Homolka had originally planned to change their surname to Teale, in honor of fictional killer Martin Thiel). For more news on Karla Homolka (now called Leanne Bordelais) check out the article at the Globe and Mail here...or CBC news here.
