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

Congratulations to Mr. Elliott who today finishes his co-operative teaching experience here at Vanier.

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott...Get work in.

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll watch an episode of Criminal Minds from its first season called "A Real Rain". In the episode, the BAU travels to New York City to investigate a series of murders that appear to have been committed by a vigilante who is exacting revenge on other criminals who have been released by the justice system. There's a good profile of vigilantism in the episode and yesterday I posted two videos from HBO that deal with "Real Life Super Heroes". We'll talk about that when done.

D Block Social Studies 10 - Don't forget from yesterday I have five questions you need to answer:
  1. Who were the National Committee of the Metis and what were their goals?
  2. Who was William McDougall and what conflict did he get involved in at the Red River?
  3. What is a "provisional government" and why did Riel establish one?
  4. What was the Metis Bill of Rights (list out the 5 points the text addresses). Was this Bill reasonable? Why or why not?
  5. What was the Thomas Scott affair? How did it affect both the Metis and the settlers in the Red River? How did the Canadian government respond?  
After, I'll have you read through “The Métis Move North and West” on pages 169-173 of the Horizons text and complete questions 1-3 on page 173 of the text. NOTE: For question 3, you don’t need to work in partners I just want you to answer “What contributed the most to the Métis’ loss of land and political power in Manitoba and the North-West Territories”?

The Métis emerged as a distinct people or nation in the historic Northwest during the course of the 18th and 19th centuries. This area is known as the “historic Métis Nation Homeland,” which includes the 3 Prairie Provinces and extends into Ontario, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories and the northern United States. Distinct Métis communities developed along the routes of the fur trade and across the Northwest within the Métis Nation Homeland.

C Block Law 12 - Today with Mr. Elliott...Law and Order. Yay!
