B Block Law 12 - Today we' finish our look at Criminal Law by shifting into sentencing. You will need to answer the following questions over the next two days:
  1. Define: absolute discharge, conditional discharge, probation, mitigating circumstances, aggravating circumstances, suspended sentence, concurrent sentence, consecutive sentence, intermittent sentence, indeterminate sentence, parole, day parole, statutory release, pardon, restorative justice, sentencing circle, closed custody, and open custody

To finish we'll look at recidivism  (re-offending, re-arrest, and re-incarceration)  and prisoner reentry into society

 We'll be finished our Criminal Law unit today and then tomorrow we have a Law and Order video to watch. I'll have your final project ready for you by no later than next Monday. The questions from today are due by the end of Thursday's class.

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we'll finish up work on our "Typical Victim" of Assault.  Who will most likely be assaulted and why? Now you are taking information and enhancing stereotypes for the people you are drawing. The stereotypes you're basing your drawings on are an example of profiling. Today we'll spend time discussing the differences between mass and serial murder. We will look at profiling and begin to understand what a psychopath is. Dr. Robert Hare of the University of British Columbia created a checklist called the PCL-R (Psychopathy Checklist Revised). We'll examine the "Unholy Trinity" of serial killer characteristics and today we'll watch a video on how profiling was developed in the F.B.I. Behavioural Science Unit (through the efforts of many highlighted by the work of John Douglas) today. The first part of the video focuses on Wayne Williams and then looks at Robert Hansen. Don't forget that in Canada the R.C.M.P. call the technique criminal investigative analysis.

D Block Introduction to Psychology 11 - Today we'll finish our look at the senses we have. Taste (gustation) and smell (olfaction) are chemical senses that employ receptors on the tongue and in the nose that bind directly with taste and odor molecules to transmit information to the brain for processing. Our ability to perceive touch, temperature, and pain is mediated by several receptors and free nerve endings that are distributed throughout the skin and various tissues of the body

After we finish our sensational look at the senses...I'll have you answer the following:

  1. Why is experiencing pain a benefit for human beings (please don’t say it builds character)?
  2. Think of the foods that you like to eat the most. Which of the six taste sensations do these foods have, and why do you think that you like these flavours?

C Block Social Studies 11 - We'll continue with yesterday's work on economic cycles on how material consumption drives the North American economic market and determine what impact losses on the stock market has on consumer confidence. We'll try to understand stocks and shares, supply and demand, and the costs of using credit. We'll also look at protectionism and see how it impacts international markets.  You have only question 1 a & b from page 79 in Counterpoints to work on and then you and a partner will work together on the Using Statistics in History questions 1 a, b, 3, and 4 from page 81 in the Counterpoints text. By doing this we will be able to see the impacts of the Great Depression on the Prairies in 1932 and 1933. Canada History Project: The Great Depression
