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

D Block Criminology 12 -  Today you'll have time to finish up yesterday's questions. Remember I wanted you to read through the "Nature of Victimization" on pages 53-5 and 57-58  and "Theories of Victimization" dealing with Victim Precipitation, Lifestyle, and Routine Activities on pages 59-62 in the CRIM text in order to answer:

1. Briefly outline and explain the patterns we've identified in victimization (social ecology, household, personal characteristics and repeat victimization)
2. Explain and compare the three theories of crime victimization (as a comparison chart or Venn diagram)

To end the class we'll talk about victim assistance. I'd like you to work on questions 1, 3 & 4 on the "Chapter Review" card at the back of the text ("What measures can you take to better protect yourself from crime?"; "If people maintain a lifestyle that that contributes to the chances of becoming a crime victim should we blame them?"; "Have you ever experienced someone "precipitating" crime? If so did you do anything to help the situation? If not would you?"). Yesterday I posted some links and we'll use them to help us explore the topic:

BC Ministry of Justice Victims and Witnesses of Crime and Violence
Victim Link BC
National Office for Victims
Victim Services Corrections Canada
Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime

C Block Geography 12 - Today we shift our focus (pun intended) to earthquakes. We'll look at some video of the aftermath of the Izmit Turkey 1999 Mw7.4 earthquake along the North Anatolian fault. We'll also look at the Loma Prieta (San Fracisco) 1989 Mw6.9 earthquake along the San Andreas fault. We'll try to compare the two and then take some notes down about the three types of faults. After, you'll have a series of questions to complete from the Geosystems text (14, 15, 16, & 19 from p. 412). Check out the cool interactive activity at National Geographic Forces of Nature or the Today in Earthquake History at the USGS. For more information check out the Digital Geology webpage on earthquakes.

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll continue our look at the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Yesterday we looked at your fundamental freedoms (section 2) and your equality rights (section 15). Today we'll focus on your legal rights (sections 7-14) and to end the class I'll have you work on questions 1-3 on page 303 dealing with the Abrams v. Doug Collins & North Shore Free Press Ltd. (1996) B.C. human rights tribunal case (you don't have to write a letter just state your opinion and back it up with sound charter and legal reasoning). Quiz tomorrow right?
