Welcome back form the break and I hope you are all ready for the stretch run as we head towards the Provincial Exam. Alot has happened in Canadian Politics since we left for break so what a fitting time for us to be starting our Government and Politics unit. During our first class we will be focusing on ideologies and the political spectrum. In order to get a better understanding of those ideologies and where you might stand I want you to take a look at the assignment below.
Homework Assignment #1 of term 3 - this is instead of the first quiz
Go to http://www.politicalcompass.org/ and 'take the test'. It will take a bit of time to complete, so please allow yourself to be busy for some time. If you get stuck on any of the questions or the vocabulary, use http://www.dictionary.com/ or just give it your best guess. There are alot of questions, so your results shouldn't be affected too much.
Post your results, or if you don't feel comfortable letting others know what your results are post your thoughts.
Challenge Activity: Read over the website explanation on ideology as it is quite thorough. We will be discussing this next day in class.
*****If this is completed before next class you get bonus marks*****
