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

B & D Blocks Social Studies 10 -  Today, we'll look at the evolution of the two colonies (Vancouver Island and the mainland colony of British Columbia) up until they combined into one in 1866. After, we'll talk about the California Gold Rush (American River 1848-1849) and the discovery of gold on the Fraser River in 1858 (along with the Nlaka' pamux - Thompson River Salish - people and the "Fraser Canyon War" and "Ned McGowan's War" both challenges to Governor Douglas' control of the British Columbia mainland colony). Finally we'll look at Barkerville and the Cariboo Gold Rush. I'll have you work on questions 2, 3, 4, and 5 on page 219 of the Horizons text and this sets you up for your Ole' Bill Coot Storyboard comic project that we'll start Monday in class.

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll try to understand what a victim of crime is. We'll discuss victims of crime and victimology. We'll look at the Holly Jones murder case in Toronto (2003) and the Victoria 'Tori' Stafford murder case in Woodstock (2009) to try to find out what impact that would have on their families, their classmates at school, their neighbourhood, and really the entire greater Toronto metropolitan area. I'd like you to read through the "Nature of Victimization" on pages 53-5 and 57-58  and "Theories of Victimization" dealing with Victim Precipitation, Lifestyle, and Routine Activities on pages 59-62 in the CRIM text. After discussing these sections your job will be to complete the following:

1. Briefly outline and explain the patterns we've identified in victimization (social ecology, household, personal characteristics and repeat victimization)
2. Explain and compare the three theories of crime victimization (as a comparison chart or Venn diagram)
