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

B Block Physical Geography 12 - Today we'll start by watching the CBC video Japan's Tsunami: Caught on Camera. Don't forget the questions in your week 4 package:

Why can tsunamis cause such damage and devastation? What are some characteristics of the wave that factor into how much damage it could cause? How do coastal or shoreline features factor into the extent of damage? What role could a warning system play? How effective would a warning system be for the west coast of Vancouver Island? Why?

AND wait for it...listen to what Tilly says at 45 seconds into the video here
That's right...geography lessons can save your life. Atta girl Tilly!

C Block Human Geography 11 - Today you've got the class to work on the week 4 package (migration). Tomorrow we'll be in the library for a quick mini-project on migration issues in the world. Thursday we looked at obstacles to migration but is there a benefit to migration? Let's see:

D Block Criminology 12 - Today your journal / blog entry is to post your response to Friday's question:

What are the short and long term impacts on victims of Crime? Use both Harper from the Law & Order episode you watched on Friday and Chapter 3 pages 54-7 in CRIM textbook to help.

Next, I'd like you to find an article (news story) about a victim of crime and for that you should outline the impacts of the crime on them. Finally, using the two stories (one fictional and one real) explain what we should do to mitigate (soften the impact) the impacts of crime on victims (be realistic). Don't forget to find stories on crime in Canada check out:  CANOE CNews Crime site...or the Toronto Star Crime site...or  Global News Crime site...or the Huffington Post Canada Crime site...or the Vancouver Sun Crime Blog
