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

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott...

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we are back in the library so that you may finish your work on the Canine Caper simulation (Case 2) on the Rice University's CSI: The Experience Web Adventure . Don't forget you have a crime scene reconstruction activity due today as well.

D Block Social Studies 10 - Today I have the library booked for you to finish your work on the Rebellions Editorial activity. Remember you need to determine whether the rebels were either justified in their actions or were traitors to the King and England. Remember it is 1842, five years after the rebellions and only a little has changed in the colonies (no responsible government yet, but the union of the Canadas, more equality of the churches, and more local control in governance). The editorial is due today. If you are finished you need to finish questions 3, and 4 from page 104 and questions 1, 4 and 5 from page 80 of the Horizons textbook.

C Block Law 12 - Today we'll start with a section of the CBC Fifth Estate documentary "The Unrepentant". We'll watch the real interview of Karla Homolka. After, we'll watch the Law & Order episode “Fools for Love” (season 10, episode 15). This episode is based on the Leslie Mahaffy, Kristen French, and Tammy Homolka cases. All three were victims of Canada's own "Ken and Barbie killers", Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. Bernardo was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in the murder of Tammy Homolka (Karla's sister) and the kidnappings/murders of French and Mahaffey, and Karla Homolka accepted a ten-year plea bargain for her roles that was later upgraded to a twelve-year plea bargain. Homolka was released on July 4, 2005, and has opted to live under the name Karla Teale (Bernardo and Homolka had originally planned to change their surname to Teale, in honor of fictional killer Martin Thiel). For more news on Karla Homolka (now called Leanne Bordelais) check out the article at the Globe and Mail here...or CBC news here.
