Socials 11: Monday - Charter of Rights
Today we began with two short video clips on the first past the post system and its shortcomings. Next, we reviewed the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and completed the study guide. I tried to explain why I think it is so important for you to know your rights so that you (and the rest of us) can protect yourselves from "the State." We ended with a brief examination of the "Notwithstanding Clause, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Declaration of Child Rights. We'll finish that tomorrow. Then we'll look at how to write a paragraph in socials. There is no homework IF you've finished all of your study guides. Sean Karlo and Joseph remember you have a quiz to write tomorrow at lunch.
