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

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we'll review Agenda Setting theory, then we'll look at Framing, Cultivation, the Knowledge Gap, and the Uses and Gratification media theory. After  we'll talk about the 48 Hours Mystery documentary we watched Friday on the Highway of Tears. We'll try to understand how media reports crime and try to take a theoretical perspective on the show and why it was made the way that it was presented to the audience. What crimes the media choose to cover and how they cover those crimes can influence the public’s perception of crime. Editors and assignment editors make complex decisions about what crime stories they will cover (or not) and what the headline will be. Journalists and reporters, in partnership with their assignment desks and producers decide what information about those crimes they will include or leave out, what experts they may go to for input, what quotes from that expert they will include, and where in the story these facts and quotes appear.

Don't forget you have three questions you need to finish:

  1. What main story do you think Investigative Reporters Bob Friel and Peter Van Zant wanted to tell?
  2. Why did the show focus on Madison Scott first, Loren Leslie next and then the victims along the Highway of Tears afterwards?
  3. Why do you think the producers and editors framed the story the way that they did?

D Block Geography 12 - Today we'll continue our look at weather; working on an activity called “Air: The High and Low of it” in your week 13 package. After you have finished this activity you need to complete questions 19 and 21 from page 177 in your Geosystems textbook.

Don't forget, we'll start the class by looking at the synoptic chart for North America and begin to understand weather station plots. Take some time on the following sites to learn more and to practice your weather operational analysis capabilities:
WW2010 - University of Illinois Weather site
National Weather Service "Jet Stream" online weather school
American Meteorological Society "Data Streme"
USA Today Reading Weather Maps
Practise at: Weather Office (Environment Canada) Operational Analysis Charts or at the Data Streme site above


A Block Social Studies 10 - Since we didn't get to it yesterday, I'll have you read through “The Métis Move North and West” on pages 169-173 of the Horizons text and complete questions 1-3 on page 173 of the text. NOTE: For question 3, you don’t need to work in partners I just want you to answer “What contributed the most to the Métis’ loss of land and political power in Manitoba and the North-West Territories”?
