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

A Block Law 12 - Today and tomorrow we'll finish our look at Criminal Law by shifting into sentencing. We'll look at the objectives of sentencing (deterrence, retribution, rehabilitation, re socialization, and segregation). You will need to answer the following questions over the next two days:
  1. Define: absolute discharge, conditional discharge, probation, mitigating circumstances, aggravating circumstances, suspended sentence, concurrent sentence, consecutive sentence, intermittent sentence, indeterminate sentence, parole, day parole, statutory release, pardon, restorative justice, sentencing circle, closed custody, and open custody
  2. Questions: page 298 Review Your Understanding question 3; page 301 Review Your Understanding question 1; page 314 Review Your Understanding question 1
We'll be finished our Criminal Law unit tomorrow and then Wednesday this week we'll begin looking at Civil Law and Civil procedures. I'll have your final project ready for you by no later than next Monday. The questions from today are due by the end of Wednesday's class.

B Block Introduction to Law 10 - Today I have the library booked for you so that you may word process your crime theory interview. Remember, you are a famous Canadian criminologist being interviewed by George Stroumboulopoulos on his CBC television show. What you'll need to do is come up with some crazy, creepy or absurdly normal crime that gained huge notoriety in Canada.

After you create a crime story idea, you'll need to have five questions that George will ask you (no "what's your name" doesn't count as one). Try to come up with questions that you can reasonably answer within three to four sentences..."So what do you think motivated (person X) to commit (action Y)"?

What should this look like? A brief paragraph that introduces the crime and gives a brief biography of you is the start. Check out what they say in the Bio of Stephen King in the video below...

Next write out the five questions George will ask you about the crime, the perpetrator, the kind of person who commits that crime, the motives of that person, an explanation of your personal crime theory and then try to answer them using your theory.

C Block Criminology 12 - Today with Mr. V...So far, we have learned about the organized criminal groups and about some of the major ways that they are making money in Canada. We will now switch our focus over to what is being done to stop the spread of organized crime. We will begin by looking at things that various NGOs are in the process of doing. You will then show what you think can be done to reduce organized crime by creating a poster that uses information from Friday and today. Posters should try and address how the organization will help reduce organized crime and what specifically they will be doing to reach that goal. This is an example of a moral entrepeneur/NGO:

D Block Human Geography 11 - Today with Mr. V...Humans have shown that they are willing to fight about almost anything. One of the major reasons used is ethnicity. Different groups all over the world have been in conflict with each other for a variety of reasons. Canada has a long history of conflicts like this that we will discuss. We will learn about the causes of these conflicts, focus on a few major examples, and think about what we could do to reduce their occurrence in Canada.

From this we'll consider Quebec and Canada. With a partner, think about EITHER what could be done in Canada to reduce ethnic conflict OR what are the major root causes of ethnic conflict in Canada? Which do you think is the most significant and why? Please have at least two paragraphs of five sentences each for a total of ten sentences. Be sure to talk through the question with your partner before you start writing anything down.
