Plagiarism

Man, so I had some students turn in other students' work as their own. To raise awareness of the issue of plagiarism, especially in the modern age, I had students read this article and write a one page response. Very interesting. We're having a discussion about the responses tomorrow.

Lots of variety of answers, with many justifying plagiarism in certain cases. I'm going to have to work hard to challenge the students tomorrow to have a good discussion, but it should be fun.
