9:20 – 10:15 Block D
10:20 – 11:15 Block C
11:20 – 11:50 Assembly
11:50 – 1:20 Terry Fox Run / Lunch

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll watch the Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit episode "Closure" This episode deals with the short and long-term effects of a sexual assault on a victim.

From "Benson does her best to help a rape victim who is able to describe her attack in perfect detail, yet unable to properly identify her attacker when push comes to shove. When the detectives revisit the case a few months later, they find the woman even less willing to talk about what  happened, as she claims she has moved on."

I want you to think hard during this episode and pay careful attention to what happens with Harper's character as it will form a base for your blog entry on Monday.

C & B Blocks Social Studies 11 - Work, work, work, work, work, work, work. You'll need to work on questions 1 & 3 on page 253 along with 1 & 4 on page 258 of your Counterpoints textbook today. For websites to help look at yesterday's blog entry.

A Block Geography 12 - Today we shift our focus (pun intended) to earthquakes. We'll look at some video of the aftermath of the Izmit Turkey 1999 Mw7.4 earthquake along the North Anatolian fault. We'll also look at the Loma Prieta (San Fracisco) 1989 Mw6.9 earthquake along the San Andreas fault. We'll try to compare the two and then take some notes down about the three types of faults. After, you'll have a series of questions to complete from the Geosystems text (14, 15, 16, & 19 from p. 412). Check out the cool interactive activity at National Geographic Forces of Nature or the Today in Earthquake History at the USGS.
