(Have students come up with an appropriate caption for this cartoon.) Here’s my entry: “And after this, Mrs. Baldwin is going to let you translate the test into twenty-five different languages.” Maybe come up with one of your own, specific to your class. (You probably want to stop at this slide. Following is a lesson on plagiarism, but I think it should be done separately, and I think it’s a bit dry. Feel free to do your own lessons on plagiarism samples and Works Cited instructions.) After the presentation, pass around the sheet for them to sign that says they watched the presentation. Check to make sure that they all signed it. (I’m going to print out my class rosters from the TAC and have them sign by their names.)
