We had a prolonged discussion in each class about how terrible my students are at cheating. I felt as though I was doing a teacher version of a Jeff Foxworthy routine:
If you can't tell the difference between the core of the sun and a sunspot but have no problem listing every step of proton-proton fusion, you might be a cheater.
|"That's cheese, yo!"
If your research paper includes embedded hyperlinks, you might be a cheater.
If you correctly answer a question that wasn't being asked on your test, you might be a cheater.
If you use exactly the same complicated wording as the person next to you, you might be a cheater.
Man, am I ready for Thanksgiving. I'm very excited to chat with my cousin, who has just become a teacher, spend time with my family and play all of the cool games I got from Kickstarter this year.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. To my Canadian friends, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving last month.
