C Block Criminology 12 - This lesson will start with a discussion on what you know about the RCMP. We will then have a discussion about other government organizations that you are familiar with that try to deal with organized crime. We will then have a presentation about what provincial and federal governments are doing to try and solve this issue. We will talk about recent laws that have been passed, about the effects of government intervention into organizations such as the Hell's Angels and mafia, and about the impact of the recent Jordan Decision. After the presentation, you'll discuss with a partner or in small groups how effective you think that the different measures taken to hinder the spread of organized crime has been. One of the people from each group will record what the you agree on and put the justification for why the group believes that. This will be handed in as a ticket out the door.

D Block Human Geography 11 - To begin this lesson we will watch a video from the BCTF talking about the history of discrimination in Canada.
We will look into the history of some of the major cases of discrimination and unrest in Canada with a focus on Canadian First Peoples, the Quebecois, and Chinese Canadians. We will discuss discriminatory laws that were passed specifically to hinder different ethnicities and the lasting consequences that this has had. We will then watch a video on the Chanie Wenjack story done by Gord Downie.
The Secret Path from The Wholesome Drone Company on Vimeo.

You will be given a list of questions to answer while you are watching the movie so you have some key points to watch for. We will finish up the class by debriefing about the video.

A Block Law 12 - Today we'll watch an episode of Law & Order from Season 14 called "Bodies". While investigating the death of a teenaged girl, the detectives stumble on a pattern of crimes that indicate they are after a serial killer. The suspect, however, puts the prosecutors through an ethical ringer when he discloses his attorney's knowledge of the victims and their whereabouts. Remember what Attorney-Client privilege is?

B Block Introduction to Law 10 - Today we'll watch a really cool video on the roots of violence from NOVA called Inside the Mind of a Rampage Killer...
What makes a person walk into a theater or a church or a classroom full of students and open fire? What combination of circumstances compels a human being to commit the most inhuman of crimes? Can science in any way help us understand these horrific events and provide any clues as to how to prevent them in the future? As the nation tries to understand the tragic events at Newtown, NOVA correspondent Miles O’Brien separates fact from fiction, investigating new theories that the most destructive rampage killers are driven most of all, not by the urge to kill, but the wish to die. Could suicide–and the desire to go out in a media-fueled blaze of glory–be the main motivation? How much can science tell us about the violent brain?  Most importantly, can we recognize dangerous minds in time—and stop the next Newtown?
