As I continue to slog through term papers, I've found two more, not as blatant, examples of plagiarism. One student has pages and pages of info with no in-text citation. The other lifts direct text and cites it but without quotation marks.
So. Furious. These fucking kids.
I already have one student in the official system for plagiarizers. These guys are less horrible offenders, but they will be failing the assignment as a result. Maybe it was my fault for assuming that my middle-level class full of juniors and seniors would only need a 20-minute refresher on citation before they wrote a paper. Stupid me.
