    A week until our road trip to Queensland. I can't wait! The day we leave, and the day after is going to be 102, so I'm very happy that we will miss that weather!!

    Ethical issue.

    1. Students write stories IN CLASS. They choose what to share.
    2. Final is sharing story aloud.
    3. Student A shared story that doesn't sound like them. Word choice is not how talked, unique sentence combinations, strange story not seeming like from this person's life.
    4. Student B (not quite trustworthy), C, and D leave note that Student A bragged how the story wasn't written by Student A.
    5. Google Search and Turnitin.com does not show plagarism.

    So do I confront her?

    I'm not a fan of spite. I'd think twice about giving credence to a student that you don't find trustworthy, especially in a note form. If the student found the need to out the other student why hide behind a note? If the student did get help writing the story, while not the assignment, it isn't a lot different from most high school and college students that have others review their papers and critic it. Student A might have got more out of the assignment with help than if they just left it be as originally written. I'd let it go given student 2 is known not to be trustworthy. So not worth the headache to all involved, it could get dicey.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Yesterday was my last day of my first semester. Spend taking two exams (got a 82% on one and got 91% on the other!!) and hung out with friends. Then my mom came and helped me pack and move out of my room. I can't not believe that my first semester is already over. It seems like last week I was moving in.

    Now it is time to get ready for Christmas. Today we got our nails done for christmas!
    On another note...my brother graduations from Akron U tonight.

    Well first off Congrat's to your brother! My sis BIL, sis husband and their Mom all graduated from Akron. Next week I will be attending my DD's graduation from college, I still can't believe she is done, or almost. One more final on Monday.

    And yay for you! Can't believe you are done with semester either. Nice grades! Are you changing dorm rooms?
    Or why are you packing and moving out?

    I need someone to do my nails.

    Busy week at work. Boss came into town, had a Holiday party after work. Then boss took us out for dinner, more food I was so stuffed. But it was a nice visit. He left just in time for the trip home when we got a lot of snow yesterday. It wasn't as much to close much in my area today but the southern tier was closed.
