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

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we will watch the CSI episode "Burden of Proof" (Season 2 Episode 215). This leads us into your "Clue Us In" crime scene reconstruction project that you can continue working on after the episode is finished. There are many important things to notice in this episode but the one thing that I'd like you to remember is that forensics can't solve every case and that the forensic analysis of crime scenes is a tedious, slow meticulous and process.

B Block Social Studies 10 - First you'll need to finish yesterday's work: define Family Compact, United Empire Loyalist, Clergy Reserves, Assembly, and Governor and the questions on the "Get to the Source: The Family Compact" section on page 53 of Horizons. Then we'll look at the ethnic "diversity" of Canada in the 1800's. I'll have you use the information from page 59, Figure 2-18, to construct a pie graph showing the percentage of the 1871 population who were: French, Irish, English, Scottish, or Other. You'll get two hand outs “The Immigrant Experience” (LM 2.4) and “Graphing Ethnic Groups” (LM 2.5) that I'll need you to work on in class. In these activities you are graphing and mapping the immigrants to Canada in the early 1800’s.

C Block Law 12 - Today we're going to watch an episode of Law and Order from season 9 called True North. From double murder of a wealthy man and his daughter leads the detectives to the wife and stepmother of the deceased. However, Canada's objection to the death penalty hampers McCoy and Carmichael in seeking crucial evidence for obtaining a conviction.
We'll discuss the episode after its conclusion.

D Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott...our focus will be on the structure of colonial government and the specific examples of the Family Compact and Chateau Clique.  We will
explore the ways in which these oligarchies maintained their wealth through land speculation why this was a cause for civil unrest.
