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

D Block Criminology 12 -  Today we'll continue our focus on violent crime looking at rape and sexual assault in Canada. We'll examine what a sexual assault is along with the three levels of sexual assault in Canadian Law. After I'd like you to focus on two questions: one on Groth's typology of rapist and the other on the causes for sexual assault.

1. Explain the three types of rapist according to Groth (anger, power, and sadistic)
2. Identify and explain the causes for sexual assault

You'll need to look at evolutionary and biological factors (remember Sigmund Freud's Thantos and Eros or instinctual drives that allowed species to be successful)? Look at modern male socialization (boys are taught to be aggressive, forceful, tough, and dominating...think about how boys play when they're young) and then at hypermasculinity (where some men have callous sexual attitudes and believe that violence is "manly"). Lastly consider both violent experiences (remember that those boys who were exposed to violence in the household are more likely to commit violent acts when they grow older) and sexual motivation (social, cultural, and psychological forces...think about the messages hidden in Axe body spray commercials).

Consider the message that this commercial sends to people...
Now consider what the commercial indicates about sex in modern society. Who is the commercial targeted at and what are the sexual roles in the commercial.

C Block Geography 12 -  I have the library reserved for the class so that you may continue working on your Orting college development project. This is the last day for research and compilation and the project is due even without loving math you can do the math right?

Ask yourself, what is the greatest danger to Orting? Of all that could potentially happen at Mount Rainier what poses the greatest threat? Now ask yourself what triggers that threat? What causes it to happen? Last think about the statistical likelihood of that event happening. How likely is the event to occur in the next 5, 10, 100, or 1000 years? Check out the risk analysis section of the COTF website for help here.

I'll remind you that this assignment is due next Monday and it is crucial that you hand it in to me as we will be at the end of our unit. Tomorrow we will have the class to finish the Hawaii Kai topographic map that we started yesterday in class.

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today with Ms. Tancon...we'll be meeting in class before heading to the library to begin research for our unit projects. A reminder that this project is due Monday, March 23rd (5 days), unless you want to do an additional quiz. We have 2 days in the library, so be sure to maximize your time. We came up with some good themes and zine ideas in class yesterday, and you can start researching your 3 events/concepts/ideas with the help of the links below. Keep track of where you get your information, and write a list of websites and/or books you used on the back of your zine.

A couple of sourcing reminders: Wikipedia is open source (that is, anyone can change or add information), so it is not a "good" or reliable source. Copying and pasting information (instead of paraphrasing, quoting and referencing it, or writing it yourself) is called "plagiarism", and is not acceptable. Ask Ms. T. if you are not sure about something you are researching. Supplies will be provided by Ms. T. when you're ready to put your zine together, and color prints at the library are 10 cents each.
