Student Cheating and Plagiarism in the Internet Era. A Wake-Up Call.
Lathrop, Ann; Foss, Kathleen
This book is organized as a practical guide for educators and parents who want to reduce cheating and plagiarizing. Ideas and strategies to counter other high-tech and more traditional "low-tech" cheating and plagiarism in K-12 schools come from dozens of authors and educators. References to online and print resources can be useful at home or in the classroom. The articles that follow many of the chapters were selected to extend the discussions, or to summarize the chapters. A "Chapter Overview" introduces each chapter--except the first--and lists the chapter subheadings, including any "Copy-Me" pages. "Pointers" at the end of each chapter--except the first--direct the reader to related information in other chapters. "Copy-Me" pages are provided for use as discussion starters with students, faculty, or parents. (The content of Copy-Me pages must not be edited and a credit statement is specified to be included whenever the page is reproduced.) The "Summary List of Web Addresses" includes all Web addresses mentioned in the book (accurate as of March 2000). Chapters are organized into three parts: Part I: "A Wake-Up Call: What's Going On," Part II: "A Call to Action: What We Can Do," and Part III: "Taking Action: Making It More Difficult To Cheat and Plagiarize." Includes summary list of web addresses and an index. (Contains 168 references.) (AEF)
