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

B Block Physical Geography 12 - Today we'll quickly review the Mass Wasting work we did this week. After, we'll look at three types of snow avalanches (loose, wet, and slab). We'll understand where they occur, why they happen and figure out the physics of snow mass movement.
Here are some websites to help...
Outside on line article on Avalanches
Crested Butte Avalanche Center
Utah Avalanche Center danger scales
C Block Human Geography 11 - We are back in the library working on a language project. Don't forget, your job will be to create an information graphic poster on an endangered language. For your endangered language you’ll need to:

  1. Show where the endangered language originated and diffused to (yes on a map).
  2. Show the connection to the family, branch, and group of the endangered language. (Use your best judgment on this). 
  3. Show where the language is spoken today, indicate how many people speak it.
  4. Show Unique features of this endangered language (What makes it different to and similar than others?)
  5. Show examples of how the language is written and or spoken 
  6. Show why your endangered language is important to save
  7. Show how your endangered language is both being threatened (contributing factors) and being saved
  8. Show how people can find more info (links...sources cited)

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll watch an episode of Leverage (the Boost Job) from Season 3. I'd like you to pay attention to is the skill set that each member of the leverage team has: Nathan "Nate" Ford "The Mastermind"; Sophie Devereaux "The Grifter"; Alec Hardison "The Hacker"; Eliot Spencer "The Hitter"; and Parker "The Thief". I'd also like you to think of the types of crime in the show and how each one was perpetrated (auto theft, embezzlement, fraud, and identity theft). In the episode Nate (the master mind of the group) briefs the team and explains that the owner of Penzer's Auto, Duke Penzer, is an ex-racer and he "clones" stolen cars by registering them in other states. Parker (the thief) knows all about how car theft works and explains how Penzer runs his scam...The episode deals with auto theft, fraud, and good burglars. This will help you with Monday's blog entry on auto theft and the following week's log entry on good burglars.
