Why, YES. I am the author of this piece. See my name at the bottom?Would any of you like to read the movie review six of my students turned in to me last week? You would? Okay.
Just go here. http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0120338/usercomments
Am I upset? Yes. Very. At this level, I have to turn them all in for plagiarism. The usual penalty is expulsion from the college.
And we just had yet another lecture about plagiarism a few weeks ago. They KNOW what it is.
Even when they call it 'calligraphy,' they know what it is. (That was today. Sigh.)
And no, I don't want any papers turned in, done in calligraphy, either.
Why did they do it? Why?
Were they just that desperate, or did they really think I wouldn't notice?
For whatever reason, they did it, and now it's out of my hands.
It was a really poorly written review, too. Not that they would know that.
