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

B & D Blocks Social Studies 10 - Okay so yesterday you started something on your Family Heritage assignment and there was a bit of confusion about what you are expected to do. The blogsite is a great resource (look at yesterday's entry) as is the assignment sheet. Today I'll give you an example of what you should look for. After we'll do some brainstorming on economic terminology to see what we know or think we know about economics...and we'll watch what Jacob Clifford and Adriene Hill have to say...

A Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll start our look at white collar crime. We will begin by learning how to identify a pyramid / ponzi scam (for more take a look at How Stuff Works). If there's time, we'll quickly look at individual exploitation of an institutional position (embezzlement), influence peddling & bribery, theft and employee fraud, client fraud and corporate crime. A great example of embezzlement and swindling was presented by John Oliver on Last Week Tonight
I'll introduce to Edwin H. Sutherland's Differential Association Theory (he introduced the concept "white collar crime") and we'll see what we can find on the Internet about white collar crime....spoil alert LOTS!
National Check Fraud Center
Robert O. Keel White Collar Crime
Canadian Encyclopedia White Collar Crime
Federal Bureau of Investigation White Collar Crime Division

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 7 classes left until the final exam and 4 classes left in the library to work on your major civil law term project. No pressure...really.
