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

D Block Criminology 12 - Today you'll have the block to work on your clique assignment or your social influences assignment that are due tomorrow. From yesterday, what are the cliques that exist in our school? To start Identify/ Brainstorm as many as you can on your own and, while avoiding stereotypes, try to describe the typical member of each clique. Get together with another two students in the class and form a triad - a group of three (not a dyad - a group of two). In your triad groups, select one clique in the school and make a poster that graphically depicts that group. Make sure that there are explanations of their behaviours, attire, appearance, attitudes and beliefs...hmmm maybe their clique culture?

How crazy is this? Ever seen the high school story game for Apple and Android products?

Play HIGH SCHOOL STORY and create the school of your dreams, filled with all your friends. Throw parties, go on dates, and recruit jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, and MANY MORE classmates to unlock their stories! Plan a surprise birthday party, star in a fashion show, go on a wild spring break beach trip, and discover hundreds of other adventures!
  • THROW PARTIES to unlock over 30 characters! 
  • DATE your crush and play matchmaker for everyone at your school! 
  • BATTLE a rival high school in an evolving story, including a showdown at the Homecoming game, a science fair, a prank war, and more! 
  • PUT YOUR FRIENDS in the game and join them on adventures, dates, and parties! 
  • MAKE NEW FRIENDS and play their stories! 
  • BUILD your dream school and decorate it with everything from a half-pipe to a box of puppies! 

Why Cliques Form at Some High Schools and Not Others
Buzzfeed Can We Guess What Clique You Belonged To In High School?

C Block Human Geography 11 - So today we'll continue with the key question Why Are Nation-states Difficult to Create? We'll look at Colonialism and see if there are still colonies today (spoiler alert there are)

  1. By definition, what is a colony?
  2. Define colonialism
  3. Summarize three reasons Europeans sought colonies.
  4. Which country had the largest empire?  Second largest?
  5. List the largest remaining colonies in the world and who possesses each.
B Block Physical Geography 12 - Another day for our look at tornadoes

Don't forget questions:

  1. Evaluate the pattern of tornado activity in Canada and the United States. Where is Tornado Alley? What generalizations can you make about the distribution and timing of tornadoes? What happened in 2003?
  2. Describe the formation process of a mesocyclone. How is this development associated with that of a tornado?
