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

C Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Today we start our week long look at Russell Williams. Canada hasn't seen a case that has drawn so much media attention since Robert William Pickton or Paul Bernardo. The case received coverage in Canada (both "Above Suspicion" and "The Confession" from The Fifth Estate on CBC and "Fall From Grace" shown on Global's 16 X 9) and in the United States as well ("Name, Rank & Serial Killer" on CBS 48 Hours, "Conduct Unbecoming" on NBC Dateline). Today we'll start by looking at the case in detail and then we'll watch "Above Suspicion" (see below).

There are lots of places to find information on the case but a good place to start is the accompanying website to the CBC documentary "Above Suspicion". By the way the documentary was originally aired on September 24th, 2010 which was three weeks before Russell Williams plead guilty to all charges in the matters against him.

D Block Geography 12 -  Today we will continue looking at biomes and biogeographic realms. Biomes are the major regional groupings of plants and animals discernible at a global scale. The distribution of these biomes is connected to climate, soil, and the physical topography of the earth. Biogeography is the study of the distribution and patterns of plants and animals throughout the biosphere. Remember, using chapter 20 of your Geosystems textbook, I would like you to describe the adaptations and structure for flora and fauna (plant and animal) in each of the biomes I listed yesterday and in your week 16 package. While you work on this I will have the Planet Earth Pole to Pole episode on for you to watch. For more on the biomes covered in the Planet Earth series check out Planet Earth

A Block Social Studies 10 - Yesterday we looked at government propaganda- advertising that was used to entice Europeans to come to Canada and I gave you a comparison chart on the picture from page 242 and the poster from page 243 of the Horizons text. You'll need to work on that chart this afternoon. Lastly I'll need you to work on questions 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7  from page 257 of the textbook.
