1. Finishing-up Defences Notes from PPT

Double Jeopardy
ADD to your notes:  Double Jeopardy: In Canada, the law allows prosecution to appeal an acquittal and if the acquittal is thrown out - a new trial is not considered double jeopardy - as the verdict from the first trial would have been annulled.

2. Preparation for a U shaped discussion.

Instead of an adversarial debating format, the U shaped discussions encourages students to see the merits of all sides and rather than holding binary opposite views one may have a positions along a continuum. The goal is to encourage you to endorse positions temporarily while listening to others in an attempt to figure out the most defensible personal stance along a continuum of possibilities. Rather than trying to convince others, students explain why the position they are sitting or standing in is the most defensible one for them. There is no need to reach consensus on the issue.

  • Each student should individually decide which of three answers best represents their thinking on a proposition: No, yes or maybe.
  • The “maybe” group stand in line across the front/or back of the class and discuss amongst yourself then select a spokespersons to explain your reasoning. When they are done, ask if any students in the audience have changed their mind and, if so, invite them to join the “maybe” group.   
  • The “no” students should form a line along the side of the classroom perpendicular to the “maybe” group and  a spokespersons to present their reasons. When they are done, ask if any students have changed their mind and invite them to join one of the groups. 
  • Ask the “yes” students to line up on the other side of the classroom facing the “no” side (the three lines should form a U shape) and repeat the same process.
  • Those of you that are the “yes” or “no” lines can move closer to the “maybe” line, if you are so inclined. Conversely, students in the “maybe” line can move to one end or the other, if they are attracted to that position.
  • A dry run: Should the age for cannabis use and alcohol be lowered to 17?
  • Some topics up for discussion:  In light of what you know about the offences of serial killers, pedophiles, those with gang ties and terrorists - those whose acts against society are most abhorrent and include murder, extortion, sexual assault and even violation of children - do you think we should bring back the death penalty? 
  • Do you believe that stricter penalties for being a member of gang and having an illegal firearm will deter people from joining gangs.

Today, we will Finish of Pioneer Life and Hand it in. Once you have finished,

RESEARCH OUR HERITAGE PROJECTS AND WORK ON LAYOUT

Work on our heritage projects. Family Trees, and looking up names in the Library and Archives Canada

1. Passenger Lists from Ships Landing in Canada

Intriguing Connections:
  1. Some migrating families were used to moving around and with cheap carriage on logging ships to be had, some travelled back home quite often, perhaps to escape the cold Canadian winters! Keeping track of their movements can be difficult, artefacts in the form of letters home or by way of introduction, military objects such as cap badges, can all pinpoint movements between census years. So they may have emigrated to Canada in the first instance but could turn up in Australia further down the line.

What is due?

You should have completed and handed in your Martin Luther Comic strip and Henry VIII project _________________________________________________________________________________

The Ocean Floor? 

In Digital Age, What’s Left For Modern Explorers?

Why were explorers determined to venture into dangerous, unknown waters?
Material gain was a powerful motivating factor for Renaissance explorers.  They hoped to get wealth for themselves and their country by finding trade routes and gold.

a)  Using an organizer (chart, bubble chart…), work with a partner to generate a list of five historical or contemporary people you know of who have taken on great challenges. You can select from any field and any time period, and the person does not have to be famous.  Beside each one write down the achievement you admire and one characteristic you think might have motivated that person to take action.

b)  Choose the motivating factor on the list that is most admirable according to your worldview. What is it?

InfoTech 10/11/12 Connecting Pages

Connecting two pages (some options)

<a href="login.html"><button>Go To Login</button></a>

This may not work in dreamweaver browser/workspace.

If you can not do that then you can try a form:
<form action="login.html">
<input type="submit" value="Go to Login">
</form>


If these don't work I would suggest setting up a work-space on your computer.
(a local environment)
To do this..
  1. Put both of your html files in a folder.
  2. Drag your opening html page into a blank tab on your browser
If you do that the link buttons should definitely work.
And make sure the <a href= points to your other html file you want to go to.

Social Studies 9

 

So what caused the Great Migration of Canada?

There were a number of factors at work that just happened to peak at the same time.

1. Firstly, the American War of Independence (1775-1783). Not all Americans during the War for Independence, wanted independence and many loyalists left America during and after the American Revolution. The British offered freedom to any slave who would join the British troops and 3500 of them came and settled in Nova Scotia. First Nation loyalists who were worried about the loss of land if the British lost, moved to Canada and of course there were many Americans who did not favour independence from Britain, whose position in America became untenable.
2. Britain was in the middle of an Industrial and Agricultural Revolution. People were being squeezed out of the countryside and a rural employment and moving to the towns. It wasn’t always easy to find work though in an increasingly mechanized workplace. Conditions and pay were poor and labourers felt a sense of exploitation.
But industrial revolution was not just confined to Britain, Europe, America and Canada were also in the throws of industrial change.
3.Skilled workers were sought after and tempting offers were made to British workers to take their chances at earning a good living in a new land and they took it.

4.In Britain, the end of the Napoleonic Wars released an enormous number of men onto the streets looking for work, just at the time when employment opportunities were stretched very thinly. Enclosure and mechanization of cottage industries such as weaving, meant more people were out of work and struggling to feed their families.
5. The mines in the south west of England were becoming depleted and families were moving en mass to other areas to find work. Some moved to the north of England others took their chance overseas.
6. In Britain the cursed Corn Laws forced the price of bread ever upwards and in Ireland, the horror of the potato famine gave people no choice but to leave and start over again somewhere else.

What happened after the period of the Great Migration of Canada?

  • Over 400,000 British people settled in Canada
  • Many were enticed with the offer of cheap or free land, this upset those settled already
  • The British population outnumbered the French and spilled over into French territories causing problems
  • The problems between the French and English became ever more convoluted and political
