Thursday, May 11. 2017

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

D Block Introduction to Psychology 11 - We'll head to the library to work on:

  1. Week 4 package
  2. Psychology  Inquiry project.
  3. psyblog or psychjournal
I'll be checking in with you today on where you are at in your process of inquiry. At this point you should have four to five questions you'd like to look at potentially clustered around one topic. Remember start with "what are some topics in Psychology that interest you?" (or what are some topics that interest you and let's see if they fit within the context of psychology). Next come up with some questions you could inquire into (and as you brainstorm possible questions, ideas and issues, ask am I going to be telling my audience something they didn’t know before?). Let's say you're interested in sports and values (Neumann University had a conference on this topic) look at these questions as ideas...

  • Can sport have psychological value for you as well, in helping to alleviate stress?
  • Sport seems to have a great deal of entertainment value. Why is sport so entertaining?
  • The values we see in sport also seem to be a reflection of the values of our society. What exactly is the relationship between sport and society?
  • Many people claim that sport has profound spiritual value. Are there spiritual values in sport and how does sport enrich our spiritual lives?
  • Do we value fairness in sport? If so, should athletes be prevented from using drugs as a key to performance enhancement?
  • Extreme sports have become popular and have become mainstream in society. Is the acceptance of extreme sports an indicator that mainstream society values and wants to adopt subcultures?
  • If  female athletes are evaluated by commentators for looks and personality rather than performance does that turn young female athletes away from sport?
  • Do I value being healthy and active? If so what sport fits my personality so that I may stay healthy and active?

Next week we start our look at cognition and measurements of intelligence; stages of human growth and development; and how we learn

C Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll look at isolation and appeasement along with Canada's declaration of war. I'll show you some archival footage from Germany and then you'll need to work on questions 2, 3, and 5 from page 98 of the Counterpoints text.

B Block Law 12 - Today I have the library booked for you to begin your work on the major civil law project that is due six weeks from now. You will have two to three library blocks per week to finish this pressure really. And don't forget if you're choosing to do three cases with a video for your law "Better call Saul"

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we have the library booked in order to continue work on our serial killer research activity which is due next Wednesday in class. When you have completed the research for this assignment then you can print off your work and start to assemble your poster. Don't forget to look at Monday and Tuesday's blog entries for more information to help you along the way.
