Socials 11: Notes from Tuesday, 15 Feb

Today we reviewed two samples of student paragraph writing that I marked as being "exemplary."  We examined one to see what balance the writer chose between "facts" and "so-what" statements.  We also noted how the writer concluded with a synthesizing "big picture" statement to show what overall effect the topic had on the war.

Next, we had a short discussion to emphasize the "must knows" associated with the 1942 conscription plebescite and identified some ways that politicians can try to be "persuasive."

Finally, we watched the segment from the People's History series on the internment of Japanese Canadians after the attack on the USA at Pearl Harbor.  Students were given Ex # 13 to complete in class.

Please complete Ex # 9-10 for homework.  We will do Ex #12 in class on Thursday.

    It appears like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen.

  6. Additionally, those accused of DUI should seriously consider hiring an attorney because driving under the
    influence cases become progressively more complex
    and the penalties upon conviction become more severe if a person has
    more than one driving under the influence conviction. The most usual defense for any offense or
    for any blunder is denial. He will try his best to shield you in opposition of
    the charges by the police officer in court.
