Tuesday, May 19. 2015

Welcome back family; I hope you had an enjoyable long weekend. Including today there are 23 school days remaining in the your best to keep on top of things and if you need help please ask for it. Today's schedule is C-AG-D-A-B

C Block Geography 12 -  Today we'll look at atmospheric moisture, humidity, and the four atmospheric mechanisms that cool a parcel of air to its dew point & cause precipitation (orographic, convectional, frontal, and radiative cooling). You will complete questions 9 from page 211 and 21 & 23 from page 212 of your Geosystems textbook. While you are working on the questions I'll have the BBC DVD The Weather on for us to watch the WET episode. The Weather is a major BBC documentary exploring the extremes of the world's climate with the engaging presenter Donal MacIntyre and in WET we ride with the rain from the wettest place in Europe to the wettest place in the world, with a stop under the parched Texan skies, where farmers hope to harness the power of nature to create rain. From the first drop of a monsoon to the floods that kill millions each year, water brings life and death in equal measure

D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we're back in the library working on the collaborize classroom site. Now for today I'd like you to do two things:

  1. Finish your work on the Dateline "My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger" thread specifically the "Big Ideas connecting the two shows" question.
  2. Work on the Social Class and crime question connected to both the Law & Order Los Angeles episode we watched last Friday and the People like Us PBS documentary below.

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll take a look at Canada's role in the post-Vietnam world in two sections - the Trudeau Era and the Mulroney Era. We'll examine Turdeau's attempt to forge a different path, one that moved Canada to a middle power in an attempt to bridge the North-South divide. After we'll look at the Mulroney era for Canada's involvement in the Cold War. We'll discuss the debt slashing policy of the Conservatives in the 1980's and touch on supply side economics and trickle down theory. After, we'll look at NAFTA and the Foreign Investment Review Agency. We'll also examine Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms in the Soviet Union and the eventual "collapse" of the Berlin Wall and the sphere of Soviet influence.

Today you'll need to work on questions 2 and 4 from page 146, questions 2, 3, and 4 from page 150 and questions 2 & 3 from page 156 in the Counterpoints textbook.
