Monday, June 13. 2016

Today's schedule is A-AG-B-C-D
In light of the events in Orlando it is especially hurtful that our pride flag "disappeared" over the weekend. If you know anything about this please contact the administration at our school. Thank you.

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we will have our last journal entry. Last week we looked at white collar and corporate crime and today I'd like you to work on a journal entry based on questions in the textbook (and the documentary "The Corporation" that we saw on Friday). I'd like you to answer the question:
"Can Corporations Commit Murder?" If a corporation is considered as a person in law (as it is in the US) who can be held liable (responsible) if a corporation kills people?

Find an example of a story where a company was held responsible for the death of people and use it to support your ideas. Check out the following:

Redefining Corporate Crime (look at the bullet points half way through the article)
Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 (a law in the UK)
Corporate Crime Reporter Top 100 Corporate Criminals (most are fraud, antitrust and financial)
Newser (news stories about corporate crime)

B & D Blocks Social Studies 10 - Today we are in the library for our next day of research/work on your family history assignment. Remember, your task is to research your family history, which includes learning how to conduct academic research, making critical evaluations regarding sources, and managing information. Please remember that I want you to use the primary documents and stories you find to uncover what daily life might have been like for your relatives.

C Block Law 12 -  I have the library booked today for you to continue working on your civil law major term project. After today there are only 4 classes left until the final exam and 2 classes left in the library to work on your major civil law term project. No pressure...really.
