What Parents Need to Know About Plagiarism

Any teacher will tell you that it is a good idea to get parents working with you rather than against you as their child’s teacher. This post from the Washington Post explores what parents should know about plagiarism. This blog has explored a myriad of issues concerning student plagiarism–how to instruct about, how to help prevent or limit, how to deal with student cases, how to create temptation free classrooms, how to train fellow teachers, etc.–but how to help parents understand the issues hasn’t been covered. Please read the article and think about ways a teacher can help parents understand the gravity of plagiarism and how to help their student understand and avoid it in their work.
