8 Cheating  TEACHERS CAN TELL IF YOU COPY/PASTE FROM WIKIPEDIA as well as other sites  Teachers can tell if you use very technical language that is well above language you have previously demonstrated  Teachers know about scribd.com as well as other sites  Its still considered plagiarism if you just scramble the order of words and drop in a few synonyms.  You can work together but each document should be written in your own style.  Be honest if you need help. Just ask! It’s what we’re paid to do, after all.

9 Cheating continued  Teachers know about using:  Water bottle labels  Gum wrappers  Bottoms of shoes  Graphing calculators  Notes on your arms, hands, legs  Passing info to other classes (even on pencils)  Signaling by coughing, scratching, tapping etc…  This is not a competition to dream up new ways to cheat

10 Honesty  is appreciated and treasured  if you are frustrated and can’t figure out an assignment; STOP, me and come in for help (please not the night before)  If you know of cheating then you are obligated to tell your peers to stop if they don’t…not letting the teacher know makes you an accomplice after the fact  Letting someone cheat off of you (assignments, tests) makes you an accomplice and you are equally guilty of academic dishonesty

11 Any Questions?  You will now take a clicker test to measure academic integrity
