Kool Aid Alert

Posted by Seeking Solace |

A student at Big Ass University in Lake Effect Snow Central was busted for trying to find someone to write a paper for him by placing a post on Facebook.

Sigh.

Wow. Seriously, how can students do that without expecting to get busted?

Thanks, Seeking Solace. That story really brightened my morning.

Hee hee hee . . . if it wasn't so funny it would be really sad . . . or do I mean that the other way around? LOL

Thanks for the laugh - it's been a *long* semester! I mentioned this to my students today, with a mixed reaction. Most immediately noted what an idiot the kid was, but a few wanted to know if anyone agreed to write the paper! Time for another talk about the honor code! (And I did point out that they might not want to post anything on one of these sites that they weren't comfortable having profs or future bosses see).

I used the story as a teaching moment too. Some of my students had mixed reaction about the cheating aspect. But, they all agreed that this person was an idiot for posting on Facebook.
