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

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we'll take a couple of minutes to review the elements of a crime, types of crime, parties to an offence, conspiracy, and attempts. The activity for the class today is to take a look at four cases in the text and find out the Actus Reus & Mens Rea of the crime. You and a partner need to identify two things:
  1. Identify the Criminal Code section & briefly explain the crime
  2. Identify the Actus Reus & Mens Rea required for the commission of the offence
The cases I need you to look at are: R. v. Sansregret (page 72), R. v. Cribben (page 75), R. v. Goodine (page 76), and R. v. Mills (page 84),

Today we move into criminal law procedures and will focus on arrests, arrest procedures, and your rights upon arrest. You will work on the R. v. Macooh (1993) case, questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 on page 91 and questions 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 on page 97 of your All About Law text.

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott we will begin with a wrap up to last week's activities. I'll need you to answer and hand in these two questions: 1) how did the natural environment impact the cultures of Canada's first peoples? 2) Identify two species that were important to First Nations and explain some of their uses. Following that we will take a look at treaties and how they developed throughout Canada's history

C Block Law 12 - Today is our mid unit Criminal Law quiz/test thingy. You had a review posted last Friday and since you had a few days to prepare I am certain that you will do extra well on this test. You'll have as much time as you need for the test however it should only take 45-50 minutes to complete. When you're done you may finish last Wednesday's questions for Mr. Elliott (p.221 q 1-5)

D Block Social Studies 10 - Today I'll have you work on questions 3 & 5 from page 108 of the Horizons textbook. After, we will look at the Charlottetown and Quebec conferences in August and October 1864. We'll talk about the circus atmosphere of the Charlottetown Conference and examine the outcomes of the week long discussion. Next we'll look at the Quebec conference and identify all of the political and logistical problems that the Founders of Confederation had to overcome. We'll figure out what the Quebec Resolutions (also called the 72 Resolutions) were and see how taxation and representation issues were deal breakers for PEI and Newfoundland.
