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

C Block Criminology 12 -Today you will need to set up a blog for the course. You may use Google's Blogspot, Wordpress, Live Journal, Bloguni, or any other blog creation site you choose. I would HIGHLY recommend staying with blogspot, wordpress, or live journal. You will need to develop a blog, and then as your first entry, you'll need to write your theory as to why people commit crime. Once you've done this, then find an article about a recent crime here in Canada, make a link to the news article on your blogsite and then write how your crime theory explains why the crime happened. An excellent crime news website is the CANOE CNews Crime site...or the Toronto Star Crime site...or Global News Crime site...or the Huffington Post Canada Crime site...or the Vancouver Sun Crime Blog 

D Block Geography 12 - Today we'll work on time zones, latitude and longitude, GPS, and the remote sensing technology of GIS (We'll watch a Brainpop video on GPS with Tim & Moby). There are five questions in the week one handout to have completed for today's class. Your homework yesterday was to look at figure 1.8 (p.13) and figure 1.9 (p.14) in the Geosystems book and try to interpret the relationships amongst the four spheres as a result of humans burning fossil fuels. If you're having trouble with this consider the carbon cycle (pages 634-5 in text) or look the links on yesterday's blog entry for more help.

A Block Social Studies 10 - Since we didn't get to it yesterday, we'll work in the Geographic Understandings book (they're the green geography books in the class). You'll need to complete the following questions on latitude & longitude, map grids, direction, and distance:
  1. Page 3 and 4 questions 2, 3, 4, & 5a
  2. Page 7 questions 1, 2, 3 and 4
