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

D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Yesterday we looked at Social Structure Theories and tried to see if the explanation of crime by the Crips fit within any of those theories (social disorganization, strain, and or cultural deviance). Remember the narrator in the documentary indicated that the Crips came out of an area that had poor schools, housing and an unemployment rate three times the national rate. Also Raymond 'Dhanifu' Cook said that they were "like bandits coming from the poor sections (of LA) to the more affluent sections (of LA) to requestion their material to bring it back to the neighbourhood" and 'Crippin' meant "are you ready to rob, plunder, pillage"? This kind of fits within the Social Structure theories. There are three major arguments among Social Process Theories that focus on how people learn to commit crime (Social Learning), how society fails to control deviancy and criminality (Social Control), and the impact of criminal labels on individuals subsequent behavior (Social Reaction). Today we'll finish the National Geographic "Inside the Bloods and Crips" show and to end the class I'll have you work on yesterday's question along with today's question: Have you ever been given a negative label, and, if so, did it cause you social harm? How did you lose the label, or did it become a permanent marker that still troubles you today?

C Block Geography 12 - Today we will look at reading a weather map. You can practice by using the following web pages: Wisconsin station model exercise WW2010 University of Illinois weather page Weather We'll start by using the WeatherCycler to understand the three dimensional aspects of a low pressure system. We'll work together as a class on Activities 1 - 4 and then I'll have you work in partners on activities 5 and 6. Your activity after this is to read through the section on weather station models, complete the model plots in the week 13 package and then be the weather forecaster for Detroit Michigan. Look in your week 13 package to see the synoptic chart (also below) and then figure out the probable weather for the next two days.

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll look at the rise of surburbia in post WW2 Canada along with the dramatic changes to Canada's culture and identity as a result of the "baby boom" generation. We'll look at how society was altered by car culture, "suburbia", and television (think consumption). British Columbia's own Nat Bailey started White Spot in 1928 and the 1950's saw the proliferation of "car hops" due to the culture of the automobile. Today, you'll need to work on question 2, 3, 5 and 6 from page 167 and then we'll look at how the government tried to protect Canadian culture and the economy. We'll look at the CBC, the Massey Commission and the CRTC. We'll look at Medicare and social welfare programs. We'll look at the changes to immigration in Canada, the points system and multiculturalism
