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

D Block Geography 12 - Today we'll start looking at storms and "CYCLOGENESIS"...sweet! We will look at mid-latitude cyclones and the source regions of air masses that cause these storms to develop. We'll analyze the difference between the three dimensional structure of a warm front and a cold front and your work to accomplish for the day is questions 1, 2, and 5 from page 147 and question 10 from page 248 in your Geosystems textbook. The following sites will help with cyclogenesis:
Michael Ritter's The Physical Environment: An Introduction to Physical Geography on line text
National Weather Service Jet Stream on line weather school
University of Illinois WW2010 Weather Wold Project

Rapid Cyclogenesis Web lesson
Environment Canada Understanding Cyclogenesis

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we'll watch the second half of the Dateline Stranger Danger "My Kid Would Never" episode. So now for the reality of stranger danger and abductions...

  • Stranger Danger doesn't teach what a stranger is
  • It doesn't account for trusted adults and
  • It can demonize all adults to children.
A 2000 Justice Department study found that of the 800,000 kids who were reported missing that year, half turned out to be runaways. MOST abductions turned out to involve family members; only 115 of all the cases reported were a version of the nightmare scenario that most troubles parents - abduction by a stranger. For more information look at;;;; or keeping children safe

OK so now what? Here's what I'd like you to answer:

  1. What do you think the purpose of the "My Kid Would Never Do That: Stranger Danger" show and what assumptions or beliefs do its creators have that are reflected in the content?
  2. Who and what is shown in a positive light? In a negative light? Why might these people and things be shown this way? What conclusions might audiences draw based on these facts?
  3. What techniques does the Dateline show use to get your attention and to communicate its message?

A Block Social Studies 10 - Today, we'll look at the evolution of the two colonies (Vancouver Island and the mainland colony of British Columbia) up until they combined into one in 1866. After, we'll talk about the California Gold Rush (American River 1848-1849) and the discovery of gold on the Fraser River in 1858 (along with the Nlaka' pamux - Thompson River Salish - people and the "Fraser Canyon War" and "Ned McGowan's War" both challenges to Governor Douglas' control of the British Columbia mainland colony). Finally we'll look at Barkerville and the Cariboo Gold Rush. I'll have you work on questions 2, 3, 4, and 5 on page 219 of the Horizons text and this sets you up for your Ole' Bill Coot Storyboard comic project that we'll start Monday in class.
