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

C Block Law 12 - Today we will have a discussion in class about your rights that you have guaranteed through various legal documents in Canada (including the Charter of Rights and Freedoms the Canadian Human Rights Act and the BC Human Rights Code a great BC Human Rights Code pdf/booklet can be found here). Expect to partner up and be prepared to present some ideas to the rest of the class. If there's time, we'll look at the three sections of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that limit your individual rights (Reasonable Limits, Notwithstanding Clause and Where the Charter Applies). After this we'll identify what our fundamental freedoms are (section 2 a-d of the Charter).

D & B Blocks Social Studies 10 -  Today we'll continue with map basics, working in the Geographic Understandings book (they're the green geography books in the class). I'd like to work on map symbols, relief and contours. You'll need to work through the following:

1. Page 20 questions 1, 2, and 3
2. Page 21 questions 1 and 2

The Natural Resources Canada website Toporama is a great resource to understand topographic map basics.  Check out their Tips and Hints site here. If there's time we'll go through what the Five Themes of Geography are (part of the map conventions handout that you got this week). For help with your map making on page 21 us the following link: Topographic Map Symbols

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we'll look at the reality of crime in Canada. CTV News Crime Severity. After we'll try to understand what a victim of crime is. We'll discuss victims of crime and victimology and the "Theories of Victimization" (active & passive victimization; deviant place & high risk lifestyles; and routine activities).
