Students today are all so consumed with modifying the old and they turn plagiarism into a normal everyday thing. The purpose of this paper is to discuss possible solutions to the issue of plagiarism among high school students in the U.S. Academic dishonesty happens with different frequencies.

He explains how he overcame his way of keeping his secret of how he was dyslexic, which he didn’t found out till college about after a friend was explains his situation, “ A friend of mine had just been diagnosed with dyslexia and was describing…. the problem I was having.” (Cook 159) Cook exclaims many reasons and information about dyslexia in his essay which he stating, “Dyslexics learn to read, but they are never fully fluent.” (Cook 159) Which I agree I’ve known many people that have struggled with dyslexia. And keeping it a secret must have been the best idea for him so no one will know since he was embarrassed with his condition. Cook already to learn how to read and write but with his dyslexia, it made it harder and harder for him to do his work. What Gareth had trouble with the most was when Cook exclaims, “If I try to write notes by hand write notes by hand while someone is talking…confused feelings” (Cook 159), he explain how when writing notes its harder for when someone is talking because of how fast the person is talking which can confuse a dyslexic person the most.
Koyczan had thrown a bunch of metaphors in his speech to capture something more than a reaction. Some of the metaphors he had used were; “My dreams are self-conscious and overly apologetic.” and another one was “When I was a kid, I traded in homework assignments for friendship.” By telling the audience this, it reveals that he didn’t have a lot of confidence when he was younger and spent more time on making friendships than focusing on school, which could tell us that he was in need for someone to be there for him. Koyczan had created a very heartbroken mood, he had expressed to the audience that everyone is much needed no matter what happens in life, he also said everyone one is much appealing than they think they are. “If you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer, because there’s something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.” By telling this to the audience, Koyczan had successfully opened to their hearts and made it easy to relate towards them. In conclusion, Koyczan did an effective job connecting with the audience, by using the right tone, creating a gloomy atmosphere and throwing in figures of speech, he created the perfect speech the captivated the audience’s attention.
The book showed real life examples of every illusion and how people are caught up in them every day. I learned that these illusions can and probably already did, lead me to make shocking mistakes. One of the quotes that stood out in the book was, "Beware of memories accompanied by strong emotions and vivid details—they are just as likely to be wrong as mundane memories, but you’re far less likely to realize it." It made me realize that memories that I remember from meaningful events could just be wrong as something that I didn’t care if it was incorrectly remembered. It shows that things you think you remember could not be that at all.
I could write a book just on the parental complaints I have received over the years while teaching about how “unfair” or “unclear” I was with a project. These grievances would almost always strongly imply that I, and not their child, was at fault for the poor grade. I would often find out that instead of assisting their child with these assignments, they would often do most of it for them. The result was the parents felt as if they deserved a better grade and it had little or nothing to do with their child’s effort. It was really about
The survey reflected I was good in prioritizing what needs to be done, managing interruptions and scheduling the time while I should improve in goal setting and procrastination as I got very low marks for those sections. When it comes to myself, always I felt goal setting is a waste of time and effort. I avoided making plans for the future. After my high school I followed many academic and professional pathways because I did not have a proper goal in my life. I ended up wasting my time and paying for several institutes for a none valuable gain.
Instead of crying and be depressed with his lost, he continued to study. But, as a human being, he is also easily influenced by what others said about him. Because he think too much on what had been said by his teacher, he drop out the school and started to do some dirty business. Well, in this situation, it teaches me that even a legend person like Malcolm X are once easily distorted by the words of the people around him. Compared to whom we are now,
“If I cheat and don’t get caught, the reward is an ‘A’ in the class”. Cheating is a getaway for everyone beginning from high school to college up to graduate and professional schools. Which leads to students participating to an academic dishonesty, a violation to any educational environment with any form of cheating or participating of any kind of sharing information to others for homework, tests, and papers. It has become so common for students that cheating has branched out to different type of styles such as plagiarism, turning in someone’s work as their own, copying without proper credit, allowing others to copy off their own work, fabricating data, to cheating off a test with their phones, handwritten notecards, written information on personal erasers etc. Today in society cheating is not a thought-out plan to do before
2.2.1 Observation After assessing pupils’ written work, I noticed that the most common error in their writing occurred when they were writing simple sentences. Pupils tend to miss out or jumble up words in simple sentences. Sentence structure is one of the most disturbing mistakes that my pupils made as it could distort the meaning that they wished to convey. Different types of worksheet, such as sentence making and sentence rearrangement, have been provided yet the error remains the same. Picture 1: PS/RO/PP1 Picture 2: PS/RO/PP2 Picture 3: PS/RO/PP5 Pursuing this further, I noticed that pupils tend to avoid writing task as compared to other tasks related to listening, speaking and reading.
Then as I asked more students regarding the meaning of homework in their own definition, I think all of their answers are just related or maybe the same like the statement above. Students also shared plenty of disadvantages of homework. First, students get frustrated and lose interest in schoolwork if their assignments are not checked immediately. It makes us feel like all the efforts of writing all those long paragraphs and solving all of those mind-boggling math problems are just nothing, making us feel down and wasted. Second, it can be too stressful at times.
These papers were papers like visual and rhetorical analysis. My weakness and strengths in writing aren’t quite many. I have always had problems with my grammar skills. Also I have an extremely horrible habit of having a lot of comma splices like you discussed today in class. Sometimes I don’t understand how I make these mistakes when I actually
The teacher uses foul language against the school students. We see this when it says “teachers brand pupils ‘scumbags’. This suggests that the writer is very dramatic and is someone who has no understanding of the difficult tasks the teachers have to go through everyday. Teachers can be stressed due to the work and can affect the student and teacher relationship in many different ways.I disagree with this point because in my school none of my teachers has never called me foul names, been disrespectful or rude. Teachers and students have always had a very professional
