Semester of Plagiarism

I’ve gotten three plagiarized papers from the same student now. He was careful to tell me that this third one wasn’t plagiarized. It was. And it was easy to tell. From a student who has had trouble putting together a coherent paragraph I received an eight page paper for a simple five-paragraph assignment. Clearly plagiarized. And easy to find. Though I did find a site which also plagiarized the plagiarism that my student plagiarized.

And another student turned in plagiarized work. It was a single paragraph that set me off. It wasn’t like the rest of the paper and, sure enough, it was plagiarized. 0. Easy to grade, once I get to that paragraph.

I hate plagiarism.
