Wednesday, December 9. 2015

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

A Block Social Studies 10 -  Today you'll have the block to work on questions 2, 4, and 5 on page 189 as well as the Apply It question 1 from the "Developing Historical Perspective" skill builder on pages 192-3 of the Horizons text.

For more on the Northwest Rebellion and Louis Riel look at:

D Block Geography 12 - Today is our LAST DAY in the library for our severe weather poster-project. Your project will need to be submitted to me in room 611 at school NO LATER than Wednesday, December 16th. I have poster board for you and previous examples that range from awesome to notsome. Please use your time efficiently.

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Yesterday we looked at Social Structure Theories and tried to see if the explanation of crime by the Crips fit within any of those theories (social disorganization, strain, and or cultural deviance). Remember the narrator in the documentary indicated that the Crips came out of an area that had poor schools, housing and an unemployment rate three times the national rate. Also Raymond 'Dhanifu' Cook said that they were "like bandits coming from the poor sections (of LA) to the more affluent sections (of LA) to requisition their material to bring it back to the neighbourhood" and 'Crippin' meant "are you ready to rob, plunder, pillage"? This kind of fits within the Social Structure theories. There are three major arguments among Social Process Theories that focus on how people learn to commit crime (Social Learning), how society fails to control deviancy and criminality (Social Control), and the impact of criminal labels on individuals subsequent behavior (Social Reaction). Today we'll finish the National Geographic "Inside the Bloods and Crips" show and to end the class I'll have you work on yesterday's question along with today's question: Have you ever been given a negative label, and, if so, did it cause you social harm? How did you lose the label, or did it become a permanent marker that still troubles you today?
