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

C Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll watch the Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit episode "Closure" This episode deals with the short and long-term effects of a sexual assault on a victim.

From "Benson does her best to help a rape victim who is able to describe her attack in perfect detail, yet unable to properly identify her attacker when push comes to shove. When the detectives revisit the case a few months later, they find the woman even less willing to talk about what  happened, as she claims she has moved on."

I want you to think hard during this episode and pay careful attention to what happens with Harper's character as it will form a base for your blog entry on Monday.

Try to take notes and have a discussion on what the short and long term impacts the sexual assault had on the character Harper in the episode.

D Block Human Geography 11 - Today we'll head off to the library to work on a small migration project. The instructions for this assignment are in the Week 4 package you have already. This project comes from Mr. Lucas Varley from Lincoln High School in Lincoln, Nebraska. You will imagine yourself in the role of a refugee/migrant who has relocated from one part of the world to another. Your job is to research in detail the many factors that are involved in a migration. You will only be given some basic information regarding your specific migration scenario. It is your job to conduct research to establish realistic demographic information for your scenario. You will need to produce a thorough written summary of your personal migration (A.K.A. Diary or Reflection journal or Newspaper article). Include as much detail as possible. Include images to help your reader gain a fuller understanding of your migration scenario. Please feel free to listen to and examine the stories below:

A Block Law 12 - Today we'll be back in the library to continue research for our Human Rights poster (which is due next Thursday - March 8th, 2018). I have poster paper for you and I'll give you the paper once I've seen your ideas (a rough sketch). Remember you need to create a visually appealing Human Rights Campaign Poster that addresses the human rights violation by incorporating key information (What is happening? Where is it taking place? What rights are being violated? Who is having their rights violated? Why are their rights being violated?) as well as pictures, symbols, and colours. Your poster should seek to draw the attention of the public through the balanced combination of text and visuals in a creative, yet educational manner!
