This week, The Tenured Radical has an imaginary conversation with her imaginary college-age progeny in which she explains why he/she should not cheat in order to get through the hellish last weeks of the semester. In the process, she directs us to some more online cheating resources (see one of my earlier posts for an enlightening one). My favourite: a detailed video on how to cheat using a Coke bottle, a scanner, Photoshop, and all that time you could have used to study.
TTR also gives the progeny some tips on how to avoid plagiarizing and how to avoid being accused of it if you haven’t done it. I heartily wish I’d found this post three weeks ago – a number of my students could have benefitted from its wisdom.

Ha! I can just picture it. An entire classroom of students, each with a coke bottle on their desk.
I came across this hilarious satire about student expectations and thought you’d like it: It’s called “I’m worried about my grade”. http://youtu.be/WVvKnq5XT-g
Oh, so, so, so true.
