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

A Block Law 12 - Since we had a Jack Talks assembly on Friday we missed the discussions on damages. So...Compensatory Damages - The basis: Compensation in tort law is based on the principle of restitutio in integrum. The Purpose: To restore the Plaintiff, in so far as money can do, to the same position as if no tort had been committed. It entitles Plaintiff to be compensated for their pecuniary and non-pecuniary losses arising from the Defendant’s tort. Compensatory damages are divided into Special and General damages. Special Damages include: Pre-trial pecuniary losses incurred by Plaintiff which includes lost income, nursing and personal attendant costs, medical expenses and consequential expenses. General Damages include: Future losses resulting from Defendant’s tort. A Plaintiff may be compensated for three heads of damages under general damages: (1) Inability to work; (2) Future care cost; and (3) Non-pecuniary losses. Each item of damage must be separately considered and compensated for.

Non-Compensatory Damages include: Punitive Damages: These are appropriate where Defendant’s misconduct was so malicious, oppressive and highhanded. Their Purpose: Punishment and deterrence. Nominal Damages: which are small amounts of money awarded when the plaintiff has successfully established a cause of action but has suffered no substantial loss or is unable to prove what that loss is. Their purpose: Vindication of the Plaintiff’s rights and a minor deterrence to the Defendant.

The rest of the class is time for you to work on your project. Good Luck.

B Block Introduction to Law 10 - Today we'll finish up work on our "Typical Victim" of Assault or Theft under $5000. Don't forget to look through the crime statistics and the theories of victimization for help. Who will most likely be stolen from or assaulted and why? Now you are taking information and enhancing stereotypes for the people you are drawing. The stereotypes you're basing your drawings on are an example of profiling. Later this week we'll take a deeper look at criminal profiling starting with a look at what psychopathy really is along with the differences between serial and mass murder. The poster is due on Thursday and next Monday you'll have a quiz then begin your first major assignment in the course.

C Block Criminology 12 - Today with Mr. V...We will have the laptops to finish up your projects. By the end of the class you should have finished gluing the sections you have worked on onto your poster boards and have talked about who is going to say what during the presentations tomorrow.

D Block Human Geography 11 - Today with Mr. V...We will start this lesson by watching a video about Marie Wilcox and how she is fighting to save her language.
Following this, you will be tasked with creating an infographic poster about an endangered language. A list of languages can be found at the endangered languages project The poster will need to cover:
  • where the languages hearth is, 
  • how it diffused, 
  • its maximum and minimum range, 
  • what is threatening the language, 
  • what is being done to save it, and 
  • a few examples of what the language looks like. 
We will have a cart of laptops for you to use for research purposes. By the end of today I would like you to have selected an endangered language, found out where the language started, and what is threatening the language.
