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

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today, we'll begin our work on the economy of Canada and specifically that of B.C. Today you'll need to begin an economic glossary for Social Studies 10. You need to define the following terms in your own words (and you can find most of them in Chapter 8 starting on page 282-3 of the Horizons text):

  1. business cycle
  2. capital (economic)
  3. Consumer Price Index (CPI)
  4. economic consumption
  5. economic demand
  6. economic market
  7. economic sector
  8. economic supply
  9. goods
  10. branch plants
  11. Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
  12. Gross National Product (GNP)
  13. heartland/hinterland
  14. non-renewable resource
  15. manufacturing based economy
  16. primary industry
  17. renewable resource
  18. resource based economy
  19. secondary industry
  20. services
  21. tertiary industry
  22. pre-Industrial (agricultural) society
  23. Industrial (mechanized) society
  24. post-Industrial (technological) society
Tomorrow we'll look at the economies of other regions in Canada and then turn our focus to B.C.

B Block Law 12 - I have the library booked today for you to continue working on your civil law major term project. After today there are only 10 classes left until the final exam and 5 classes left in the library to work on your major civil law term pressure.

D Block Law 9/10 - Today we'll look through the physical and mental elements of a crime. We'll focus on the three types of criminal intent and understand the difference between Strict Liability and Indictable Offenses in Canada (remember that in Canada we do not have felony and misdemeanor offences). I'll have you work on questions 1-7 on page 74 of the All About Law textbook. Lastly, you will be responsible for working on the case questions from R. v. Thornton (1990) q 1-4 p.70 ( Main Question: Did Thornton have a legal duty arising out of the common-law to inform the Red Cross of his HIV status?) and R. v. Sansregret (1985) q 1-6 p.72 (Main Question: Is willful blindness relevant to a mistake of fact in consent in a sexual assault charge?)
