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

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we will continue our look at criminal forensics by looking at how fingerprints are "lifted" at a crime scene (including what AFIS is), what the "Four T's" are for marks at a scene, how fibres are used, and what ballistics is. We'll practice a bit by getting fingerprinted. We will all get one set of fingers (and thumb) on one hand fingerprinted (our non dominant hand) by using graphite pencils and scotch tape. You will need to identify whether or not your prints are loops, arches, or whorls and then place them up on the blackboard. You will need to identify the total number of loops, arches, and whorls for each finger (and thumb) for the class (for everyone's sets of prints) and then graph the data. The graph is a comparative bar graph. For each finger (thumb, index, middle, ring & pinky) count up the total number of loops, arches, and whorls and graph that out next to each other

B Block Law 12 - Today I have the library booked for you to continue your work on the major civil law project that is due in just under three weeks from now. After today, you have five library blocks left to finish this pressure really. And don't forget if you're choosing to do three cases with a video for your law had better start script writing and planning your production dates ASAP.

C Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll examine the Cold War in detail. We'll learn about the economic and political ramifications on Canada of an ideological conflict between the two superpowers. We'll watch a bit of the Atomic Cafe movie in class. The Atomic Cafe contains civil defense movies from the 1940's through the 1960's and will help you understand the culture of fear that developed throughout the Cold War. I hope you get a sense of the fear associated with nuclear war and communists (Senator Joseph McCarthy's communist witch hunt - the House Un-American Activities Committee which became known as the ideology of "McCarthyism"). We also took a look at the Truman Doctrine (President Truman pledged assistance to "free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures") which helps you understand your "Cold War Flashpoints" activity that you'll get tomorrow. FYI you'll have a 30's and 40's test on Wednesday this week.

D Block Introduction to Psychology 11 - Today we'll start our look at Abnormal Psychology (Psychopathology) and focus on what the American Psychiatric Association (APA) outlines as conditions for a diagnosis for a psychological disorder. We'll find out what unusual, maladaptive and harmful behaviour are along with stigma...especially in the context of psychological disorders (and we'll talk about combating stigma - yes you

You'll have two questions to answer and then you may work on your personality mask assignment for the remainder of the class

  1. Discuss why thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that are merely atypical or unusual would not necessarily signify the presence of a psychological disorder. Provide an example.
  2. Identify a behavior that is considered unusual or abnormal in your own culture; however, it would be considered normal and expected in another culture.
