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.
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
Honesty is appreciated and treasured if you are frustrated and can’t figure out an assignment; STOP, email 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
