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

D Block Human Geography 11 - Today you have your first test in the course and it will be on weeks 1-4 (Geography Fundamentals, Population and Migration). There are 33 Multiple-Selection questions, 14 True/False questions and 1 short answer question (worth 13 marks) for a total of 60 possible marks (with a bonus drawing question). Your first order of business is to relax and read each question carefully. Make sure you understand what is being asked of you and if you don't know ask. Don't leave any question blank...try to answer everything. Don't forget you may use your weeks 1-4 note packages for this test and you have as much time of the block as you need.

C Block Criminology 12 - Today we'll start with our victimology quiz. You may use the notes on victims and victim theories to help. After, we'll wrap up our introduction to violence with a few more Bugs Bunny Cartoons.Today we'll see Rabbit Seasonings, For Scentimental Reasons and lastly The Ducksters. Criminal Harassment (Stalking), Sexual Assault, Assault, Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault (torture), and Unlawful Confinement are just a few of the crimes in these cartoons...all violent crimes. While we watch the cartoons I want you to think about the implicit and implied messages that each cartoon sends to kids (rather than the explicit and obvious messages) and then we'll talk about what those messages do even if kids understand the difference between cartoon and real violence.

B Block Introduction to Law 10 - Today we'll start with our test review. You wrote your test yesterday and I'll give you back your graded papers today. You have the chance to earn an additional 10 marks on the test. What you need to do first is on a separate sheet of paper answer the following:

Now that you have looked over your graded test, estimate the percentage of points you lost due to each of the following (make sure the percentages add up to 100):

1. From careless mistakes (read the question incorrectly, misread the answer I selected, or did not read all the available choices) ______
2. From not being familiar with terms ______
3. From not knowing facts ______
4. From not understanding concepts ______
5. From not being able to apply concepts in new contexts ______
6. From not seeing connections between concepts or facts ______
7. From other reasons (please specify)
(Please specify: ______________________________________________)

Next choose up to 5 multiple selection and or true false questions that you got wrong on the test.

In the spaces below, put each question you did not get correct and reflect.

  • Question# ________
  • My Answer ______ Correct Answer ______
  • Reflection (Why did I get this wrong?, What was I thinking?  What was the principle or idea being tested? Think about why you answered the question incorrectly. Select a reflection choice that identifies why you got the problem wrong)
  • What can I do differently next time to get the question correct?

Above all, be honest with yourself and your answers.

Just a reminder...your Comox Valley Crime Maps are due

Finally, we'll look at crime scene investigation. You'll start with the basic stages of a search, documenting evidence, and examples of what is included in a crime scene investigator's toolkit.

A Block Law 12 - Today is your introductory unit final test in Law. The unit test will cover the first three chapters of the All About Law text (Foundations of Canadian Law, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and Human Rights in Canada). The test will have: 15 True/False questions; 15 Multiple Choice questions; 15 Matching questions; and 3 Short Answer questions. Since you had a few days to prepare I am certain that you will do extra well on this test. No lawyer works in isolation and today neither will you, you may collaborate with colleagues on the test. You'll have as much time as you need for the test however it should only take 45-50 minutes to complete. When you're done you may finish yesterday's questions
