Lockdown Lessons

Work for Thursday 10th & Friday 11th December

Good morning,

I hope you’re all very well.
I know you have a lot of work at the moment and that you’re trying to get ready for your mock exams next week.
Because of this and because we will be having classes as normal from January, I have decided not to do a virtual lesson with you this week after all.
I'm giving you an essay to write for this week’s work, but you can either email it to me during the holidays or hand it on Thursday 7th January when I see you again.
The essay questions are on p.124 of your textbook. Unit 10 Either Question A or Question B. 
Question A: Discuss the following statement: "Technological and scientific breakthroughs have made it more difficult for people to break the law. Science is the best deterrent of all."
Question B: "In a world where everyone uses a smartphone, a tablet and a computer, almost every crime leaves a digital trace." Can science and new technology be a godsend for lawbreakers? 
You should write around 250 words (and not 120 words, as it says in the book).
Be careful not to pick phrases directly from the Internet if you do research online.
Please type your essay if at all possible with double line spacing and glue / copy the following marking scheme to the bottom of it.
It only remains for me to wish you good luck in your exams next week and to wish you a happy Christmas, too. I look forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
All the best,
Diane Jeffrey

Hi everyone, 

I hope you're all well.

We will continue our work on Axe 4: Citizenship & Virtual Worlds. I'm putting the content for BOTH lessons here and you can organise your time how you like.

If there are any problems at all, get back to me. 

I will send you all an email tomorrow with this work and you can write back to me if you need / want to.

1) Watch the following video three times. Take notes the second and third time. Answer the questions on p.104, Crime-Solving Gadgets, Part 1.


2) Read the article on p.104. Answer questions A & B in Part 2: CCTV and facial recognition.

3) Answer question C (it is very similar to the discussion we had in class last time): "CCTV is seen either as a symbol of Orwellian dystopia or a technology that will lead to crime-free streets and civil behaviour." Please write least two paragraphs to discuss this, giving both sides of the arguments and then your own opinion. 

Remember, George Orwell wrote 1984, so Orwellian refers to a dystopian world in which the government etc can spy on its citizens and control them.

4) Send a screenshot of your answer to the question above (Question C, part 2, p.104). Please avoid sending this via the "ENT messagerie". The screenshot can be posted (hopefully) in the "travail à rendre" tab. Deadline: By Wednesday 25th Nov at the latest please.
