I can’t help it. My friends keep sharing great articles about plagiarism (on Facebook, of all places), and I feel compelled to share them on here.
Another article from the New York Times highlights the growing concern of plagiarism on college campuses. This article targets the change in philosophy of the cut-and-paste generation, one that doesn’t think about the ramifications of borrowing, lifting, re-purposing others’ work. As my friend, an instructor at a college in Illinois, commented, “I already see this in my classes, where people simply try to copy down the steps that I’m doing without thinking whatsoever about what those steps actually mean.” However, read the entire article – the last paragraph makes it worth it.
