Welcome Autumnal Equinox. Today's schedule is B-A-D-C.

B Block Physical Geography 12 -  Today in class you’ll look at tectonics and plate boundaries. You’ll have to take down a few notes on divergent, convergent, and transform plate boundaries along with hot spots and then you'll need to work on two questions on geothermal energy and the effects of the Juan de Fuca plate and ridge just off our shores. While you're doing this we'll watch:

Hey remember that Juan de Fuca plate question...lookie what just happened

D Block Criminology 12 -Today you have time to complete yesterday's questions:
  1. Briefly outline and explain the patterns we've identified in victimization (social ecology, household, personal characteristics and repeat victimization)
  2. Explain and compare the three theories of crime victimization (as a comparison chart or Venn diagram)
While that's happening, I'll have you watch a 20/20 episode called "Out of the Woods" In the story, a birthday sleepover ends with a 12-year-old close to death. Girls tell Police they plotted to kill friend for 'slender Man' and meet the 12-year-old 'slender Man' attack survivor.

C Block Human Geography 11 - Today we're in the library looking at 2017 World Population Data (using both the PRB Interactive Map and the pdf data sheet) to see current trends and numbers in world population. You have a webquest with questions in your week 3 work package to answer. You may work with a partner to find answers to the 17 questions but you all need to record answers. Use:

2017 World Population Data Map
2017 World Population Datasheet

For the last question you'll need to choose one of the following demographic variables using the World Population Data Sheet and create a choropleth map showing the distribution of that indicator on a world outline map:

Infant Mortality
Birth Rate
Death Rate
Total Fertility Rate
Life Expectancy

The instructions are in the week 3 package but feel free to ask me in class today. Good luck!
