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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today you need to work on your shoplifting poster. Remember:
You work for the Retail Council of Canada and have been hired to create a poster campaign about shoplifting. The poster campaign has two purposes:
  1. To help employees identify people who are shoplifting and
  2. To explain how to reduce shoplifting in stores (target hardening and target removal strategies)

Look at yesterday's blog entry for tips on how to spot shoplifters and for more check out:
Preventing Retail Theft (you can't make a profit it your merchandise is free)
Using Customer Service to deter theft
Simple steps to deter retail theft
Preventing Retail Theft pdf

While you're doing this I'll show you the first part of the History Channel DVD "Scammed" which deals with "con men" ...

C & B Blocks Social Studies 11 - Today we're back in the library for the second day of research for your World War 1 Inquiry project. Don't forget the guided inquiry question you need to frame your research around is:

What effect did (Your selected topic) in the First World War have on Canadian society and its status as a nation?

You’ll need to find specific primary source data that will help explain or show the impact your selected topic had on Canada using:

1. Original Documents (excerpts or translations acceptable): Diaries, speeches, manuscripts, letters, interviews, news film footage, autobiographies, maps, official records -OR-
2. Creative Works: Poetry, drama, novels, music, art

Look at yesterday's blog for online resources and don't forget the library has these things called books...they're full of information and stuff that can help you. Don't forget a sources cited list using APA formatting (check out BibMe or Citation Machine or Concordia University's citation guide)

A Block Geography 12 -Today we continue our look at chemical weathering by focusing our attention on karst topography and caves (think Guangxi province in China, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, and Arecibo in Puerto Rico). If you go to the Geoscape Nanaimo webpage you can find some really good graphic and information about Karst on Vancouver Island (on the left hand panel look at "Our Rock Foundations" and you'll find the subsection on caves and karst).

For work today you'll need to define: stalactite, stalagmite, flowstone, sinkhole/doline, and karst valley. You'll need to answer question 17, 20, 21, and 23 from page 443 in your Geosystems text and explain how tower karst (pagodas) forms and identify where it can be found. For cool pictures of solution cave formations check out The Virtual Cave. Also if you wish to see these features "live" you could travel 40 kilometres south and go to the Horn Lake Caves. We'll watch the Planet Earth Cave episode. This will help you with the week 8 questions on Karst topography and solution cave formation.
Planet Earth - Episode 04 - Caves from Planet Earth on Vimeo.

Check out the National Geographic article "Cave of the Crystal Giants" which is about Cueva de los Cristales, or Cave of Crystals, a limestone cavern with glittering selenite crystal beams discovered in 2000 nearly a thousand feet below ground in the Naica mine in northern Mexico.
