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

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott...Quiz Day! Yay!

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll start by looking at the work from yesterday - the difference between deviance and criminal behaviour (acts that are criminal but not deviant and deviant but not criminal). Remember, using the text and your brains you need to come up with a list of things that are deviant but not criminal and a list of things that are criminal but not deviant. After you'll need to take one act from either list and explain why it should be criminalized or why it should be decriminalized. This will lead to our look at the three perspectives of how criminologists view crime:

Consensus = the belief that the majority of citizens in society share common values and agree on what behaviours should be defined as criminal.
Conflict = the belief that criminal behaviour is defined by those in a position of power to protect and advance their own self-interest.
Interactionist = the belief that those with social power are able to impose their values on society as a whole, and these values then define criminal behaviour.

Once this is done we'll turn our focus to the history of crime and law (looking at Hammurabi, the Mosaic Code and the development of Common Law in England). We'll learn what Actus Reus, Mens Rea, Mala in Se and Mala Prohibitum mean along with taking a look at the differences between Indictable, Summary Conviction and Absolute Liability Offences. We'll see what defences you can use and what the goals of criminal law are for society.

D Block Social Studies 10 - We didn't get to it yesterday so I'll show you three Canada: A People's History episodes on the Resistance; "If We are Rebels"; "War is Upon Us"; and "A Single Act of Severity" and 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 the settlers in the Red River? How did the Canadian government respond?  

C Block Law 12 - Today with Mr. Elliott...we will finish Criminal code offences with a look at street racing and other driving offences such as failing to stop at the scene of a accident, dangerous driving and impaired driving and the related charge of failing to provide a breath or blood sample.
