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

B Block Law 12  - Today I have the library booked for you to continue your work on the major civil law project that is due in just over three weeks. Including today you have six library blocks to finish this assignment...no pressure really. And don't forget if you're choosing to do three cases with a video for your law firm...you "Better call Saul"

A & C Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today you'll have time at the beginning of the class to finish up yesterday's work on the Canadian Pacific Railroad (questions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 from page 202 of the Horizons textbook). We begin the last history section in our course by looking at immigration to and settling of the Canadian west. We'll look at government propaganda- advertising that was used to entice Europeans to come to Canada and I'll have you do a comparison chart on the picture from page 242 and the poster from page 243 of the Horizons text. We'll focus on the power of advertising and Clifford Sifton's "Last Best West". We'll also look at the Township and Range division of Prairie land along with the Icelandic and Mennonite settlers on the Prairies and we'll watch "The Last Best West" from Canada: A People's History.

D Block Law 9/10 - Today you'll continue our look at criminal forensics by getting fingerprinted. We will all get one set of fingers (and thumb) on one hand fingerprinted (our non dominant hand) by using graphite pencils and scotch tape. You will need to identify whether or not your prints are loops, arches, or whorls and then place them up on the blackboard. We will then count up the total number of loops, arches, and whorls for each finger (and thumb) for the class and graph the data.
