Plagiarism or working together

Reply Sat 13 Mar, 2010 11:13 pm
When I was in high school, we were required to read six books during the summer, not the measly one book most students read these days. We were also required to do one book report for each month of the school year in addition to the reading done in class.

I received a paper from a student at the community college where I teach. It was perhaps the worst paper I ever read, full of run on sentences and illogical assumptions. However, there was something about the language that raised my suspicions, so I typed one sentence into google. 'Her' entire essay came up. It was from a copyrighted site. I downloaded the original and returned it to the student along with her paper and a copy of the colleges policy on plagiarism.

Of course, this is an entirely different situation than the one described here.
