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

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll begin our look at the steps to world war two and Canada's response. We'll review your work on the rise of dictators and then we'll examine German aggression in terms of European politics. Next we'll look at isolation and appeasement along with Canada's declaration of war. I'll show you some archival footage from Germany and then you'll need to work on questions 2, 3, and 5 from page 98 along with questions 1 through 4 on page 105 of the Counterpoints text which deals with Canada's response to the outbreak of World War Two, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan and the concept of Total War. After, we'll watch the last half hour of Hitler in Colour.

This video deals with the rise of Hitler in Germany from 1933 to the invasion of the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa) in 1942. Tomorrow we'll examine the military strategic movements in Europe and the Pacific at the beginning of World War Two

C Block Geography 12 - Today we're continuing our look at water by focusing on coastal processes and landforms. We will look at how water erodes, shapes, and creates coastal landscapes by focusing on long shore current & drift. We'll analyze the differences between an erosional and depositional coastline and try to make sense of the hazards of living along depositional coastlines (think Cape Hatteras, North Carolina). For additional information and help on questions 8, 11, 13, & 14 in your Geosystems text go to:

Cerritos College Earth Science Coast Landforms
University of Regina Geomorphology Class notes
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Geomorphology from space site
USGS Coastal & Marine Geology program
NOAA: Pressures on Coastal Environments

There's a great article on the dangers of people moving to coastlines at EARTH magazine here.

There's a great web page on the Graveyard of the Atlantic: Sable Island Nova Scotia. Check out more on Sable Island here.

You can also find some very good before-after photos of the destruction caused to coastal landforms and human infrastructure by Hurricane Sandy at the CBC here or the Weather Channel here

D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Welcome to Crime Media and Society 12. Today we will go through the course outline package and see what topics we have in store for the next three months. After we finish looking at the outline here's what I'd like to talk about...what are your earliest memories about watching crime on TV? Was it the news, a police proceedural or was it something like this?
