Wednesday, May 18. 2016

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

B & D Blocks Social Studies 10 -  Today you'll have the block to work on questions 2, 4, and 5 on page 189 as well as the Apply It question 1 from the "Developing Historical Perspective" skill builder on pages 192-3 of the Horizons text.

For more on the Northwest Rebellion and Louis Riel look at:
HistoriCa! minute on Louis Riel

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we will spend a few minutes reviewing our discussion of serial and mass murder from yesterday and then we'll have a discussion on psychopathology. To better understand the people that commit heinous acts of murder, we'll take some more time to understand what a "psychopath" is. We'll continue our look at Dr. Robert Hare's PCL-R (Psychopathy Checklist Revised). The diagnosis "Psychopath" is closely related to Antisocial Personality Disorder in the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th Edition). After we'll finish our look at mass murder by focusing on Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who killed 13 students at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado (for more see school shooters). We'll examine the Department of Justice (FBI) Critical Incident Response Group report "The School Shooter: A Threat Assessment Perspective" and the Columbine Review Commission report of Governor Bill Owens. In essence we'll look at the background of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold as well as the types of behavior, personality traits, and circumstances in the family, school, and community environment that should be regarded as warning signs of school shooters.

Don't forget, I'd like you to:

Explain the types of serial and mass murderer along with the reasons why they commit these crimes.

C Block Law 12 - Today I would like you to read the Thomas v Hamilton Board of Education (1994) case and we'll talk about it together. If there's time then I'd like to look at the Thornton et al. v. Board of School Trustees of School District No. 57 (Prince George) et al. (1978) case together (kind of an important case for non-pecuniary loss in Canada). We'll discuss this case and then I'll go through civil trial procedures with you and give you some notes on summons or statements of claim and the options available when a lawsuit is claimed against you (statement of defence, counterclaims, third party claims, or default judgements). Next I'll explain the benefits of an out of court settlement and identify why negotiating an agreement is better than going to court. In case you missed it yesterday I gave out your project and reminded you that you have the option of completing a 30 second commercial for your law firm much like those at  http://www.bettercallsaul.com/
