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

A Block Social Studies 10 - Yesterday we began our look at Victorian attitudes and values connected to the wider British Empire. Today we'll look at Aboriginal Reserves, the Gradual Civilization Act (which led to the Indian Act of 1876) and Residential Schools. We'll finish with a couple of questions related to Sir John Colborne and assimilation (p. 97 of Horizons).

 D Block Geography 12 - Today we look at stream profiles, deltas, and floodplains. We are focusing on the erosive action of rivers along with the landforms that they create. You will need to define nickpoint, undercut bank, point bar, and slip-off slope along with copying a meandering stream profile (figure 14.15 on p.460 in the Geosystems text) and a diagram on oxbow lake formation (figure 14.16 on p.461 in the Geosystems text). Your homework is questions 17, 20, 21 & 22 from page 482 in your Geosystems text.

C Block Criminology 12 -  Today we'll start our look at white collar crime. We will begin by learning how to identify a pyramid / ponzi scam (for more take a look at How Stuff Works). If there's time, we'll quickly look at individual exploitation of an institutional position, influence peddling & bribery, theft and employee fraud, client fraud and corporate crime. I'll introduce to Edwin H. Sutherland's Differential Association Theory (he introduced the concept "white collar crime") and we'll see what we can find on the Internet about white collar crime....spoil alert LOTS!
