Monday, June 15. 2015

Welcome to the last week of classes for the 2014-2015 school year. Today's schedule is A-AG-B-C-D

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today in class you'll work to compile your infographic poster on the commodity / resource / monoculture crop that you researched last week. Don't forget that you're trying to tie this topic to a country that depends upon your commodity.This assignment is due today in class so please work hard to compile your information and make your infographic poster interesting and attractive. I'll have smelly felts and coloured pencils for you to work with. Later, if there's time we'll look at the environmental issues that we face as Canadians in the context of the modern world. So, we'll examine climate change, ozone depletion, acid rain and potable (safe drinking) water. Last week we watched the "Story of Stuff" which looked at our rates of consumption. Today we'll look to see the connection between consumption and environmental degradation of ecosystems. After we'll see if we can connect our look at population and living standards to this topic.

C Block Geography 12 - Today I'll have you work in partners on the Ecuador case study. Remember the question is: Using the data provided on the next two pages and your understanding of geography:

  1. Describe Ecuador's natural and physical characteristics
  2. Assess the impacts associated with the exploitation of Ecuador's natural resources
  3. Suggest reasons why the government of Ecuador faces significant challenges in trying to balance the use of its natural resources with the protection of its environment
This is an open book partner activity and I'll go over the answers with you half way through the class. I'll explain how I'll be marking the case study on the exam and then we'll spend some time looking at to what? Remember it's too late to be a pessimist! Look below for places to get information on what to do:

D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - OK so this is and tomorrow are the last two days in the library working on the collaborize classroom site. Now for today I'd like you to do two things:

  1. Continue posting in your individual project thread and 
  2. Post and comment on the age / gender / race-ethnicity and crime thread question.
