Happy Halloween. Today's spooktacular schedule is C-D-A-B

C Block Human Geography 11 - Today we'll look the the key question "Why Do People Preserve Local Languages?" This is the basis of your current project in Human Geography (and we'll be back in the library for this tomorrow and Thursday this week). We'll look at multilingual states and linguistic diversity in Switzerland, Belgium, Nigeria and here in Canada. We'll try to examine of Celtic languages like Welsh, Irish, Breton, Scottish, and Cornish are being preserved along with Aboriginal languages (in Both Australia and Canada) and Maori (in New Zealand). Finally we'll look at English as a lingua franca and examine pidgin, Fringlish, Spanglish and Denglish.

D Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll delve deeper into theft by looking at Burglary, Break and Enter, Arson (and the motives for setting fires intentionally) and then we'll examine the five types of motor vehicle theft.

B Block Physical Geography 12 - Today we're looking at streams and drainage basins. You'll need to work on a few definitions, a diagram, and questions 1, 3, 10, 11, and 12 from page 481 in your Geosystems textbook. The Canadian Atlas online has a great section on drainage basins . In order to understand streams we'll watch a Bill Nye the Science Guy episode on the topic - Rivers & Streams (#209). Splash down a rapid river with Bill Nye the Science Guy and explore how ecosystems work and why they are important to our environment. From waterfalls and dams, to the depths of the Grand Canyon, this is one wet and wild ride. This week's music video showcases the Talking Headwaters singing "Take Me to the River
