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

 D Block Geography 12 - Today we finish Dante's Peak and don't forget that you have a series of questions to answer about the volcanology of the movie. Today is the main portion of the volcanic eruption and the effects that Dante's Peak takes on the small town that sits in a valley near its base (it's really Wallace Idaho but play along...) Little known fact: On September 25, 2004, Mayor Ron Garitone proclaimed Wallace to be the center of the Universe so if you want to go to the center of the Universe go to Wallace my dog Roscoe and I did over the past few years.

C Block Criminology 12 - I'd like to share the CBC DocZone Documentary "Sext Up Kids" with you. The documentary exposes how growing up in a hyper-sexualized culture hurts our kids and sends the wrong messages that could potentially lead to sexual assaults. From the CBC site:

From tiny tots strutting bikini-clad bodies in beauty pageants to companies marketing itty-bitty thongs and padded bras to 9-year olds, images of ever-younger sexualized girls have become commonplace.  Add to that: ever-younger boys with 24-7 access to hard-core internet porn.   It saturates their lives - from skate parks to the school bus – by the time they’re eighteen, 80 percent of boys are watching porn online.

So we'll watch the documentary and use information from it to help with our blog entry from Monday.
After I'd like you to focus on two questions: one on Groth's typology of rapist and the other on the causes for sexual assault.

1. Explain the three types of rapist according to Groth (anger, power, and sadistic)
2. Identify and explain the causes for sexual assault
A Block Social Studies 10 -  Today we'll continue looking at the ethnic "diversity" of Canada in the 1800's. You'll need to finish your pie graph and flow map showing the percentage of the 1871 population who were: French, Irish, English, Scottish, or " Other" and where they came from. After this please complete questions 1 & 2 on page 56 of the Horizons text along with questions 2 & 5 on page 64 of the Horizons text. We'll finish by looking at the four causes of discontent in Upper Canada that led to the Rebellion of 1837. We'll look at the colonial government structure (Governor appointed members of the Executive and Legislative Councils that routinely ignored the wishes of the elected Assembly) and the ruling colonial elite (Anglican Church, the wealthy United Empire Loyalists and the business people, bankers, lawyers and military leaders that formed the Family Compact). We'll also look at the problem of land distribution (only 10% of all land in the colony was being farmed while the remaining land was being held on the possibility of accruing wealth for the Family Compact and the Anglican Church) and Transport (canals like the Welland Canal and not roads). .
