Thursday, June 1. 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 7 package (including personality mask assignment)
  2. Psychology  Inquiry project
  3. psyblog or psych journal

Don't forget that the online textbooks are Introduction to Psychology and Psychology

Also there are some tests I would like you to work through to help with your Week 7 work on personality:

Psych Central MBTI Quiz
16 Personalities Quiz
Jung Personality Test
Open Extended Jungian Type Scales 1.2


Big Five Personality Test
IPIP Big-Five Factor Markers

C Block Social Studies 11 -Today we'll continue with our focus on the end of the war in the Pacific looking at the Manhattan Project and the use of nuclear weapons in Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki). This takes us to V-J Day and the end of World War Two. I'll have you finish questions 1-4 on page 121 (Is the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction ever justified?) and questions 1 & 2 on page 122 from the Counterpoints textbook. We'll watch "Seconds from Disaster: Nagasaki"

B Block Law 12 - Today we'll be in the class continuing to watch the documentary Hot Coffee.  Hot Coffee reveals what really happened to Stella Liebeck, the Albuquerque woman who spilled coffee on herself and sued McDonald’s, while exploring how and why the case garnered so much media attention, who funded the effort and to what end. After seeing this film, you will decide who really profited from spilling hot coffee. Today we'll watch two sections of the movie and then you have the rest of the class to work on your Civil Law project...

  1. Colin Gourley
  2. Jamie Leigh Jones

Colin Gourley was born with cerebral palsy because of medical malpractice at birth. He received a $5.65 million award at trial to cover his medical expenses, but because of a Nebraska state-mandated cap on damages he could only collect $1.25 million, an amount that will not cover a lifetime of care. The film shows how the lawsuit cap has affected Colin and his family, as well as how dramatically different his life is compared to that of his identical twin brother, Connor.

Hot Coffee also shows the success of the tort reform movement and its impact on average people in the form of mandatory arbitration contracts. The film introduces Jamie Leigh Jones, who accused her co-workers of rape when working in Iraq as a private contractor for KBR/Halliburton. When criminal charges could not be filed, she sought to hold Halliburton accountable for their misconduct, but a forced arbitration clause buried in her employment agreement meant she lost her right to a jury trial.

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - I have the library booked so that you may work on the Clue Us In crime scene investigation project. Please note that your library time is coming to a close, today is the last day I have for you in the library, so please don't waste time. 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.
