    Read for a book discussion in my school district Gil is a thoughtful reflective teacher and he writes compassionately about why students plagiarize why some teachers unknowingly set kids up to cheat and how to create interesting assignments that are cheat proof I was interested in the reasons kids cheat laziness stress over deadlines confusions I like his response to plagiarism in his class he has students fill out a form talking about why they did what they did and how I loved the assignment where he asks kids to use the internet to 'find' or 'cut and paste' a research paper from a generic assignmentthe most important thing he does is makes kids thinkthink about what they did and what they learnedHe talks about metacognitive assignments asking the kids to write about what they learned He believes that will remind students of the value of learning over the value of just getting the grade Heavy on Alfie Kohn so I'm not surprised he comes down against rubrics to grade but since he's a practicing teacher I know he understands the struggles that teachers and students faceI found some great ideas to implement in my classroom next year

    You dread confronting students who have plagiarized But every year you have to By the time you detect a simple citation mistake or a research misdemeanor it's too late The right prevention strategy can reduce or eliminate the incidence of plagiarism This is a good plagiarism checker tool to help you check your work on authenticity


  3. Cara Cara says:

    Some worthwhile ideas about plagiarism but also about how to teach writing and research Definitely worth the time

    This book left me with uestions than answers Gil treats the subject with humor which makes the book easy and fun to read; but in spite of all his sources I think he fails at treating the subject objectively It's clear that he doesn't have an established approach to solve or address the issue Sometimes he explains one of his postures and pages later he contradicts himself showing another one of his postures Ok I get that the problem of plagiarism is a complicated one that involves many many dilemmas I get that But I would have liked a little conviction on his part I'm not saying that this is a bad read I'm just saying that this book is like a discussion or exploration of the problem and not a clear straight proposal to solve it in my opinion

    This is an issue that is becoming prevalent in my school Students either don't know or don't care about borrowing information and using it as their own I'm looking forward to getting some concrete preventiondetection strategies

    Informative but not life changing Biggest take away was ideas for helping students paraphrase for notes and organise information without an intimidating outline


  7. Kelly Ann Kelly Ann says:

    A pretty good guide for students and it offers some great discussion points to use in the classroom


  8. Lea Lea says:
