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

C Block Geography 12 - Today, you'll need to start work on the physical weathering questions in your week 8 package: definition of frost action, exfoliation, and pressure release jointing along with questions 10, 12, 13, and 15 from page 442 of your Geosystems textbook. You can find the answers between pages 420-423 in the text. Next, we move on to chemical weathering. We'll take some notes down about carbonation (solution), oxidation, and hydration and fill in a chart on weathering types, rates, and their connection to climate conditions. Lastly you'll need to work on questions 17, 20, and 21 from page 443 in the Geosystems text and you can find the answers between pages 423-427 in the text. We'll use the animations found at the University of Kentucky Earth & Environmental Sciences department

D Block Criminology 12 -  Today we'll delve deeper into theft by looking at Burglary & Break and Enter. I'll need to answer the following: What characteristics must a good burglar have? (Look at Neil Shover's explanation on page 234-237 in the CRIM textbook.... Neal Shover studied the careers of professional burglars and uncovered the existence of a particularly successful type--the good burglar. Shover also discovered that a person becomes a good burglar through learning the techniques of the trade from older, more experienced burglars). After that we'll look at arson and the motives for setting fires intentionally then we'll examine the five types of motor vehicle theft and identify how you can protect your vehicle from being stolen (target hardening strategies). In the time left you may finish working on your shoplifting poster assignment.

B Block Social Studies 11 - We'll continue with yesterday's work on economic cycles on how material consumption drives the North American economic market and determine what impact losses on the stock market has on consumer confidence. We'll try to understand stocks and shares, supply and demand, and the costs of using credit. We'll also look at protectionism and see how it impacts international markets. After, we'll discuss the changes in the social fabric of Canadian society as a result of the Great Depression in the 1930's. You and a partner will work together on the Using Statistics in History questions 1 a, b, 3, and 4 from page 81 in the Counterpoints text. By doing this we will be able to see the impacts of the Great Depression on the Prairies in 1932 and 1933.
After, we'll watch episode 1 of "The Dark Years" a National Film Board cartoon about the Great Depression in Canada. From IMDb..."A wildly disparate group of Canadian newsmen sets out to cover the major events of the 1930s in ways that will guarantee their newspaper - The Toronto Daily Star - comes out on top. Viewers relive the stories of the toughest decade of the 20th century told through the excitement, romance and razzle dazzle coverage of a big city newspaper. Series uses original animation, archive and eye-witness accounts". I'll have you answer the following while watching:               

  1. Why did Prime Minister Mackenzie King tell Canadians that the Stock Market Crash would have little impact on Canada?
  2. What promise did Prime Minister R.B. Bennett and his Conservative Party make to get elected in 1930?
  3. Should prime ministers try to minimize citizens’ anxieties during a crisis?
  4. While the economic conditions in the 1930s prevented many people from spending money on consumer goods, the newspaper industry was surprisingly profitable. Why?
  5. What was the extreme response of some people to the financial crisis?
  6. What was the “jungle”? What happened to the people who lived here who could no longer cope with the Great Depression?
  7. How did unemployed men travel around the country, without paying? What was this called?
  8. What program did the government set up to deal with the unemployment crisis?
  9. Where were the convicted members of the Communist Party of Canada taken, and what were the conditions there?
