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

C Block Law 12 - Today with Mr. Elliott...Senator Mike Duffy has been acquitted of all charges which brings us to our discussion of fraud. we will take the first portion of the class to finish questions 1-4 on p. 147 of the textbook. when you have completed these (which most have) do questions 2,3,5 on p.236. after this we will take a few minutes to discuss the Duffy case and the reasons why he was acquitted. If we have time we will begin our discussion of Firearms offences.

D Block Social Studies 10 - To start the class today we'll go over the work from yesterday on the fur trade and the relationship that developed between Aboriginal Peoples and the HBC and NWC. Do not forget that you have a Compare/Contrast chart that you need to hand in today along with question 2 & 3 from page 135 of the Horizons text. Next we'll take a look at the Metis, Bison and the Red River Valley. I'll have you finish the class by completing questions 1 & 2 on page 142 of the Horizons text.

A Block Criminology 12 - Today I want you to continue collecting all of your ideas about reasons for criminal behaviour on the overhead-computer-board and then try to categorize them into crime theory clusters (similar categories). We'll see where your clusters fit in terms of Choice, Trait, Social Structure, Social Learning, and Conflict theories. After this, we'll begin our look at the nature vs. nurture debate by focusing on the history of psychological and sociological criminology.

For Monday, you need to create your own theory of why crime happens. You'll need to use the brainstormed list we did in class along with the notes you'll get today on the history of Criminology. Use the Crime Theory Web Site found on this link. To end the class we'll watch a really cool video on the roots of violence from NOVA called Inside the Mind of a Rampage Killer...

What makes a person walk into a theater or a church or a classroom full of students and open fire? What combination of circumstances compels a human being to commit the most inhuman of crimes? Can science in any way help us understand these horrific events and provide any clues as to how to prevent them in the future? As the nation tries to understand the tragic events at Newtown, NOVA correspondent Miles O’Brien separates fact from fiction, investigating new theories that the most destructive rampage killers are driven most of all, not by the urge to kill, but the wish to die. Could suicide–and the desire to go out in a media-fueled blaze of glory–be the main motivation? How much can science tell us about the violent brain?  Most importantly, can we recognize dangerous minds in time—and stop the next Newtown? 

  B Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott...Today we will look at the aftermath of the execution of Thomas Scott and the early days of the province of Manitoba. We will also discuss the laws of Saint Laurent and Gabriel Dumont's role as leader in Riel's absence. After this we will play a review game and have some fun to end the week.
