You choose what you're interested in looking at through the lens of the inquiry question (above) and select a presentation format that you feels best works for you and then see me.

These are websites that you should start with:

A Block Geography 12 - Today, you'll need to start work on the physical weathering questions in your week 8 package: definition of frost action, exfoliation, and pressure release jointing along with questions 10, 12, 13, and 15 from page 442 of your Geosystems textbook. You can find the answers between pages 420-423 in the text. Next, we move on to chemical weathering. We'll take some notes down about carbonation (solution), oxidation, and hydration and fill in a chart on weathering types, rates, and their connection to climate conditions. Lastly you'll need to work on questions 17, 20, and 21 from page 443 in the Geosystems text and you can find the answers between pages 423-427 in the text. We'll use the animations found at the University of Kentucky Earth & Environmental Sciences department

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll continue our look at property crimes, where we'll discuss the history of theft and make sense of the differences between occasional and professional thieves. You'll need to answer the following:

What are the differences between a professional and an occasional thief?
What is a "situational inducement"?
What is a "Booster", a "Heel", and a "Fence"?

After, you'll need to work the following:

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 pages 228-9 in the Crim text for help. Here are some further ideas and points.....

Spot the Shoplifter: Unfortunately, there is no typical profile of a shoplifter. Thieves come in all ages, races and from various backgrounds. However, there are some signs that should signal a red flag for retailers. While the following characteristics don't necessarily mean guilt, retailers should keep a close eye on shoppers who exhibit the following:

  1. Spends more time watching the cashier or sales clerk than actually shopping.
  2. Wears bulky, heavy clothing during warm weather or coats when unnecessary.
  3. Walks with short or unnatural steps, which may indicate that they are concealing lifted items.
  4. Takes several items into dressing room and only leaves with one item.
  5. Seems nervous and possibly picks up random items with no interest.
  6. Frequently enters store and never makes a purchase.
  7. Enters dressing room or rest rooms with merchandise and exits with none.
  8. Large group entering the store at one time, especially juveniles. A member of the group causes a disturbance to distract sales staff.
This will take the whole class to complete and will be handed in on Thursday for marks. For more check out:
