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

A Block Geography 12 - Today we are working on the Medicine Hat Topographic map. You need your Canadian Landscape topographic map book and the Medicine Hat map can be found on pages 40-42. You will need to work on questions 1 a, b and d, 2 a & b, 3 a-e, 4, 7 a-d and 8. This work is due on Thursday and if you wish to work on this activity out of the class (and really who wouldn't?) I would highly suggest you ask me questions ahead of time. You can find topographic maps of Medicine Hat on Google Maps (Type in Medicine Hat Alberta on a Google search and click on maps at the top and then choose "Terrain" as an option). Do not forget that you have a unit final test on Thursday (look at the blog yesterday for the review). Please take all of your marked/corrected work out of the bin in the class and spend some time preparing. Good Luck.

B & C Blocks Social Studies 11 - Today we'll continue with our activity on the 20's in Canada. Using chapter 3 in the Counterpoints textbook (pages 48-72) you need to identify the changes in and challenges to Canada for the following four topics:

  • Arts, Culture, and Leisure
  • Government, International Autonomy, and Political Parties
  • Industry, Jobs, and Wealth
  • Society (race, gender, social class), Urbanization, and Values

This will be done in a webbed format and needs to show the massive cultural and economic shift that occurred in the 1920's. When completing this activity you'll need to identify any connections between the topics that you can. You'll need to look at: prohibition in Canada and branch plants in Canada; William Lyon Mackenzie King, the Halibut Treaty, the Chanak Affair, the Statute of Westminister and the King-Byng crisis; Aboriginal title and cut off lands (including Joe Capilano), racial segregation and immigration laws, Emily Murphy and the Person's Case; as well as the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, the US influence on Canadian culture.

D Block Crime, Media and Society 12 - Welcome to Crime Media and Society 12. Today we will go through the course outline package and see what topics we have in store for the next three months. After we finish looking at the outline here's what I'd like to talk about...what are your earliest memories about watching crime on TV? Was it the news, a police procedural or was it something like this?

Which is very different than this...

Whats New Scooby-Doo - 3x05 - Ready to Scare by tgtrhgtr2 And very different than this...
