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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll start with our violent crime quiz (you may use your notes) and then when we're done you need to work on your shoplifting poster. Remember that 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:

AG - Today we're going to look over the required courses you need for next year and see what options you have. You'll be programming your classes through MyEdBC.

C Block Social Studies 11 - Don't forget, you need to work on questions 1 & 2 from page 24 as well as question 2 from page 47 along with questions 2, 3, and 4 from page 28 of the Counterpoints textbook. Today we'll examine the horrors of trench warfare in World War One. We'll look at the advances in technology that caused the stalemate on the Western Front and the slaughter of millions of men. To begin we'll get into the nitty-gritty of war technology and weaponry through the video "Infantry Weapons of WW1" (also look at Alpha History WW1 Weapons). After, we'll take a look at the Schlieffen Plan and the Western Front. Next we'll look at what trenches were like and then we'll

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll start with a section of the CBC Fifth Estate documentary "The Unrepentant". We'll watch the real interview of Karla Homolka.

 After, we'll watch the Law & Order episode “Fools for Love” (season 10, episode 15). This episode is based on the Leslie Mahaffy, Kristen French, and Tammy Homolka cases.  Finally, I'd like you to finish with question 7 from page 179:
The plea negotiation has become the primary means of dispensing justice in Canada. It is effective, both for accused criminals looking to minimize their punishment and for prosecutors coping with the torrent of cases sloshing through the courts. Is it morally correct to trade the legal rights guaranteed by the Charter for convenience and cost savings?
For more here is a Dateline episode on the murder case...

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today I have the library booked so that you may work on the Clue Us In crime scene investigation project. Remember you need to create a crime...replicate the crime scene...investigate the crime as if you were an R.C.M.P. officer...and prepare a dossier file to hand over to Crown Counsel so that they may prosecute the case. It's due Friday...Good Luck.
Check out the Crime Museum (Crime Library Forensic Science) website for sweet info. If you are finished then you may work through the Rookie Training simulation on the Rice University's CSI: The Experience Web Adventure . Please do the training for Forensic Biology (DNA), Toxicology, Firearms and Toolmarks (Ballistics), Medical Examiner (Pathologist) and CSI Ethics. When you are done you may work through Case Two (Canine Caper) - I'll have a lab/work sheet for you to complete as you progress through the case.
