Intro to Renaissance continued:

*Humanism: What is Humanism? How does it differ from the Middle Ages (*hint: theology).

Definition:  As the name suggests humanism is all about the human. It focuses on human beings, their values, abilities, and individual worth, and human society as something valuable that could be improved.  It is the belief that human needs and values are more important than religious beliefs. 
-critical thinking and evidence (rationalism and empiricism) over acceptance of dogma(blind belief) or superstition..An example of humanism is the belief that the person creates their own set of ethics.
Renaissance humanism is the study of classical antiquity, at first in Italy and then spreading across Western Europe in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. 

Renaissance humanism challenged the worldview of the Middle Ages.

* Renaissance Worldview:  What is a worldview, examples?  What is Canada's worldview?  What is your worldview?  Using a graphic organizer compare the worldview of the Renaissance to Canada and yourself.

A worldview is a view of the world, used for living in the world.  A world view is a mental model of reality — a comprehensive framework of ideas & attitudes about the world

A Canadian Worldview?

February 22, 2018 Law 12 The Charter Section 8

 Essay :  How does social media interact with the rule of law?

Section 8 of the Charter:  Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.

The purpose of Section 8 is to protect a reasonable expectation of privacy. Simply stated, police and other government agents cannot, without sufficient reason, invade the personal privacy of individuals. What constitutes a 'reasonable' search depends on the surrounding circumstances. In most cases, those who act on behalf of the government, such as police officers, must obtain a pre-authorized search warrant from a judge before they can enter private property to look for or seize items.

Alexi Wood Associate Explains search and seizure.

Case Study of R. v. A.M (may not show)

Prezi on Section 8 of the Charter

Case Study:

Here are so many questions that this case presents:
Does a vice-principal have the same authority as a police officer, that of the right to search a student?
What is more important: the safety of a student or the privacy of a student?
Does a student have a right to privacy concerning the contents of a locker?
Is a report from another student, reasonable grounds to search someone suspected of drug possession?
These and other questions are raised by this case. How do you respond?
