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

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we have our first quiz in the class; you'll need no more than 20-25 minutes for it really. After the quiz, we'll venture off to the library to begin work on a small project about nasty people. It will be your job to create a poster on a serial killer.

Select a criminal from the list below and discuss your selection with me to obtain approval to proceed with your research no later than Today. No more than two students may choose the same criminal and your selection of a criminal is on a first-come, first-served basis. Prepare a poster on your criminal that must include the following information:

1. Name of the criminal (including an image of them) along with any aliases they may have.
Summary (not details) of the crime(s) the criminal committed, with corresponding dates (year only) of the crimes.
2. Explain the type of victim that the criminal sought
3. Explain how the criminal was caught (by whom & how? What led to his/her capture?)
4. Indicate the criminal's background, childhood, method of committing the crime, and characteristics which cause the criminal to fit within the particular theory you selected.
5. State, define, and explain the criminological theory, (classical, biological, psychological, sociological, or integrated) which explains the criminal's behaviour
6. State which serial killer category the criminal is: mission-oriented, hedonistic, visionary, power/control, thrill killer, expedience killer; (and define whichever category you select)...More on this on tomorrow's blog entry

B Block Law 12 - Today I'll give you time to work on questions 1-4 of the Canada (Attorney General) v. JTI Macdonald Corp., (2007) case on page 44 in the text. This deals with whether limits imposed on tobacco manufacturers’ freedom of expression by provisions of Tobacco Act and Tobacco Products Information Regulations are justified (referring to Charter sections section 2.b Freedom of Expression and section 1 Reasonable Limits). I'd also like you to work on question 3 from page 46 which deals with the R. v. Keegstra (1990) and R. v. Butler (1992) cases. When we finish this you may work on your Human Rights poster (I have bristol board for you in the class).

C Block Social Studies 11 - Today I'd like to begin a discussion on the qualities of leadership. In essence I want you to think about people who you would follow and describe what makes a good leader. Try to avoid confusing leadership with success and popularity. So with a partner brainstorm a list of people who you think make good leaders and identify the qualities or traits of leadership that you admire or think are important. When we're finished going over your ideas work on the following questions:

1. What are your top five qualities of leadership? Explain them with examples to help.
2. How can leaders motivate people to follow them and get people to be involved in social issues?
3. What is the worst fault a leader can have? Why?
4. Can you be a good leader but not be a good communicator? Why or why not?
5. Why is it important to have a good leader as the Prime Minister of Canada?
6. Explain the “roles” (power) that the Prime Minister of Canada has to play

For help look at:

Fortune Magazine World's Greatest Leaders
Forbes Magazine Top 10 Qualities of Leadership

D Block Criminology 12 - Today your journal / blog entry is to answer the following:

Now that you know about trends in crime in relation to age, gender and class...Do you think that school is one of the most dangerous places for young people in society today? When you answer this question consider the following self-report survey...

Within the last 12 months have you:

  1. Stolen anything under ten dollars ($10) in value
  2. Stolen anything between ten ($10) to fifty ($50) dollars in value
  3. Stolen anything over fifty dollars ($50) in value
  4. Trespassed on private property
  5. Purposefully broken or damaged public or private property
  6. Purposefully spray painted “tagged” public or private property
  7. Deliberately set fire to something
  8. Forcibly entered a house or building
  9. Consumed any hallucinogenic drugs (marijuana, peyote, PCP “angel’s dust”, LSD “acid”)
  10. Consumed any stimulant drugs (methamphetamine, cocaine, crack)
  11. Consumed and depressant drugs (heroin, morphine, barbiturates)
  12. Been drunk in a public place while underage
  13. Bought or sold any drugs
  14. Driven a car that wasn’t yours without permission
  15. Violated the terms of your driving conditions (“N” OR “L”)
  16. Driven while under the influence of alcohol
  17. Been involved in a fist fight
  18. Hit someone with a weapon (stick, rock, bat)
  19. Verbally threatened someone with the intent to intimidate
  20. Held or detained someone against their will
  21. Been a victim of an unprovoked assault
  22. Had someone threaten to physically harm you
  23. Been a victim of sexual contact without your consent
  24. Had something stolen from you under ten dollars ($10) in value
  25. Had something stolen from you between ten ($10) to fifty ($50) dollars in value
  26. Had something stolen from you over fifty ($50) dollars in value
  27. Had any of your property damaged or broken
  28. Been a victim of discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, gender, or sexual orientation
  29. Known someone who has been the victim of a crime
Broaden your scope a little and do not necessarily focus on Vanier for this question. Think about other Canadian, British Columbian or Comox Valley high schools and generalize your response a bit. Don't forget that you'll need to find a story to back up your point of view here (either one about how little crime exists in schools or one that demonstrates that schools are somewhat dangerous places).
