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

D Block Criminology 12 -  Today you have your violent crime quiz; relax and dazzle me with what you know.  After, we'll begin our look at property crimes, where we'll discuss the history of theft and make sense of the differences between occasional and professional thieves. You'll need to answer the following:

What are the differences between a professional and an occasional thief?
What is a "situational inducement"?
What is a "Booster", a "Snitch", and a "Fence"?
What are "Target Hardening" and "Target Removal" strategies?

After, you'll need to work the following:

You work for the Retail Council of Canada and have been hired to create a poster campaign about shoplifting. The poster campaign has two purposes:
  1. To help employees identify people who are shoplifting and
  2. To explain how to reduce shoplifting in stores (target hardening and target removal strategies)

Look at figure 11.2 on page 257 in the Criminology text for help. Here are some further ideas and points.....
Spot the Shoplifter: Unfortunately, there is no typical profile of a shoplifter. Thieves come in all ages, races and from various backgrounds. However, there are some signs that should signal a red flag for retailers. While the following characteristics don't necessarily mean guilt, retailers should keep a close eye on shoppers who exhibit the following:
  1. Spends more time watching the cashier or sales clerk than actually shopping.
  2. Wears bulky, heavy clothing during warm weather or coats when unnecessary.
  3. Walks with short or unnatural steps, which may indicate that they are concealing lifted items.
  4. Takes several items into dressing room and only leaves with one item.
  5. Seems nervous and possibly picks up random items with no interest.
  6. Frequently enters store and never makes a purchase.
  7. Enters dressing room or rest rooms with merchandise and exits with none.
  8. Large group entering the store at one time, especially juveniles. A member of the group causes a disturbance to distract sales staff.
This will take the whole class to complete and will be handed in on Monday for marks. For more check out:

C Block Geography 12 - Today we finish Dante's Peak and don't forget that you have a series of questions to answer about the volcanology of the movie. Today is the main portion of the volcanic eruption and the effects that Dante's Peak takes on the small town that sits in a valley near its base (it's really Wallace Idaho but play along...) Little known fact: On September 25, 2004, Mayor Ron Garitone proclaimed Wallace to be the center of the Universe so if you want to go to the center of the Universe go to Wallace my dog Roscoe and I did over the past few years.

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today with Ms. Tancon...we will meet in class and then head to the library to begin work on the second part of our 1920's Activity (remember: both parts are being marked on content: not just a completion mark!). You will choose 5 Canadian personalities from the list below and identify their accomplishments. The front side of the card should have a picture of them along with their name, and the back of the card should list out who they were, what they did, and why they were important. There will be a template in the H Drive under "AYOUNG SS 11" set up in the library for today's class. The "Decade on a Page" and the flash cards are due by the end of class on Friday (March 27th) so Ms. T. can mark them over the break. Friday is also the final day to hand in your Zine Projects, and any outstanding assignments from your time with Ms. T. The complete list of names is here:

J.S. Woodsworth
Lionel Conacher
William Lyon Mackenzie King
Bobbie Rosenfeld
