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

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 over two weeks from now. After today you only have five (5) library blocks remaining to finish this assignment...no pressure really. And don't forget if you're choosing to do three cases with a video for your law firm...you had better start script writing and planning your production dates ASAP.

A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today we start with a quiz on crime scenes and forensics. You may use your notes to help. After, you will work some questions about arrests and your rights upon arrest from the All About Law textbook:

  1. questions 1 and 2 on page 91;
  2. questions 1, 3, 4, & 5 on page 97 and;
  3. questions 4 and 5 from page 114

D Block Introduction to Psychology 11 - Today we'll look at the classification of mental illness according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V), published by the American Psychiatric Association (2013). So it's disorder day...

C Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll look at the contrast to Trudeau and the Third Way...the Mulroney era for Canada's involvement in the Cold War. We'll see how he slashed debt through the policy of the Conservatives in the 1980's and we'll touch on supply side economics and trickle down theory. We'll also watch the last ten minutes of the Atomic Cafe video and I'll also show you an NFB cartoon by Richard Condie called "The Big Snit" (which is a weird take on the cold war but more of a short movie about the relationship between a husband and wife From the NFB: This wonderfully wacky animation film is a look at two simultaneous conflicts, the macrocosm of global nuclear war and the microcosm of a domestic quarrel, and how each conflict is resolved. Presented with warmth and unexpectedly off-the-wall humor, the film is open to a multitude of interpretations).

You'll also be working on your "Cold War Flashpoints" activity where you'll analyze the following four conflicts through a W5H approach: Korean War, Vietnam War, Suez Crisis, and the Cuban Missile Crisis. NOTE: W5H = Who (countries & people) was involved; What happened during the conflict; When did the conflict take place; Where did the conflict break out and spread to; Why did the conflict occur; and How was Canada involved and affected by the conflict.
