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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today you need to work on your shoplifting poster. Remember:
You work for the Retail Council of Canada and have been hired to create a poster campaign about shoplifting. The poster campaign has two purposes:
  1. To help employees identify people who are shoplifting and
  2. To explain how to reduce shoplifting in stores (target hardening and target removal strategies)
Look at yesterday's blog entry for tips on how to spot shoplifters and for more check out:

C Block Human Geography 11 - For the next two days and for two days next week we are in the library working on a language project. 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)

An Infoposter is a graphic that conveys multiple segments of information typically using words and numbers to represent data. Infoposters generally use iconic-type graphic elements for visual design appeal and are typically vertical in orientation, like a wall poster. They are meant to be read, usually from top to bottom. They are created to collect a variety of data about a topic in one place and to communicate it in an interesting and easy-to-read format.

So, you’ll need to choose an endangered language:

You will need to chose an information graphic site to use:

B Block Physical Geography 12 - Today we'll look at Mass Wasting (falls, slides, and flows). We will figure out the causes of Mass Wasting by looking at both the driving and resisting forces on hillsides and slopes. We will try to figure out some slope stabilization practices and specifically we'll look at what has been done at Goose Spit to stop erosion of the Willemar Bluffs along Balmoral Beach. We'll also review the problems of the Sea to Sky highway (Hwy 99 from West Vancouver to Squamish), The Trans-Canada through the Rockies (Highway 1) and we'll review the Oso Washington slide from March 2014. You will define rock fall, debris avalanche, landslide, mud flow, and soil creep and work on questions 27 & 32 from page 443 in your Geosystems text.
