Wednesday, April 5. 2017

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

B Block Law 12 -  Today in Law we'll finish up the violent crimes section of this unit. First we'll review assault and sexual assault. We'll discuss consent, age of consent and then look at the Tackling Violent Crime Act (2008).  Next we'll review robbery and I'll have you work on questions 2, 3 and 4 on page 231  along with a "Key Components of Criminal Code Offenses" worksheet that I'll hand out today (the worksheet is a partnered activity). Tomorrow we'll look at property crime in Canada.

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today you will be responsible for working on the case questions from R. v. Thornton (1990) q 1-4 p.70 ( Main Question: Did Thornton have a legal duty arising out of the common-law to inform the Red Cross of his HIV status?) and R. v. Sansregret (1985) q 1-6 p.72 (Main Question: Is willful blindness relevant to a mistake of fact in consent in a sexual assault charge?)

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll start our look at white collar crime. We will begin by learning how to identify a pyramid / ponzi scam (for more take a look at How Stuff Works). Next, we'll look at individual exploitation of an institutional position, influence peddling & bribery, theft and employee fraud, client fraud and corporate crime. I'll introduce to Edwin H. Sutherland's Differential Association Theory (he introduced the concept "white collar crime").  A great example of embezzlement and swindling was presented by John Oliver on Last Week Tonight
Another really good example of a text message scam can be found in a CBC news story...where bad cheques are forged and passed on to unsuspecting victims.

C Block Social Studies 11 - To start today, you may continue your work on the WW1 Canadian Battles Chart that briefly explains each battle, identifies Canada's role in them, and explains the results (impact). Use pages 30-32 in Counterpoints and the resources from yesterday's post for Ypres (2nd Battle), Somme, Vimy, and Passchendaele (3rd Battle of Ypres).Next, we start by reviewing 1917 - a crucial year in the First World War (Don't forget we already know about Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele). We will take a look at the crisis surrounding conscription (Military Service Act) and see how that issue divided Canada. We'll also look at the Suffragette movement (Nellie McClung) and the Wartime Elections Act of 1917 that was tied to the Military Voters Act. You'll need to work through questions 1 & 3 on page 39 and 1 & 4 on page 42 in your Counterpoints text
