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

D Block Geography 12 - Today....Oh today we start with weather, the best topic ever! I'll have you brainstorm a list of things you know (or think you know) about weather and then I'll try to answer questions you've always wanted answered about the topic. I'm so excited to be starting weather! Hail, lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes are four on "the list" get ready, it's going to be a bumpy ride. I'll go through weather extremes with you and try to understand why weather is so important as a topic of study.
Everyone has considerable experience with, and a basic understanding of, the weather. To a large extent, weather dictates the clothes we wear, how we drive, and even our choices of recreational activities. Every day we get info about the weather, through the TV and more importantly through being outside. Our experiences help us to have a basic understanding of weather. Why study weather? Well over the last two decades weather related destruction has risen by more than 500% from an average of $2 Billion annually to $10 Billion annually.

Every day we are going to start by looking at the synoptic forecast along with weather maps.

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Welcome to Crime Media and Society 12. Today we will go through the course outline package and see what topics we have in store for the next three months. After we finish looking at the outline here's what I'd like to talk about...what are your earliest memories about watching crime on TV? Was it the news, a police procedural or was it something like this?

Which is very different than this...

A Block Social Studies 10 - Today you have your Early 19th Century History (Rebellions-Confederation) unit final test, if you studied and came prepared I am certain you will find the test a breeze. The test should really only take you no more than forty-five minutes to an hour to finish but you have as much time in class as you need. Good luck!
