My Word!
Plagiarism and College Culture
“Cassroom Cheats Turn to Computers.” “Student Essas on InternetOer Chaenge to Teachers.” “Faing the Grade.” Headines suchas these have been baring the aarming news o an epidemic o pagiarism and cheating in American coeges: more than 75 percento students admit to having cheated; 68 percent admit to cutting andpasting materia rom the Internet without citation.Proessors are reminded amost dai that man o toda’s coegestudents operate under an entire new set o assumptions aboutoriginait and ethics. Practices that even a decade ago woud havebeen regarded amost universa as academica dishonest are nowcommonpace. Is this deveopment an indication o dramatic shitsin education and the arger cuture? In a boo that dismisses hand-wringing in avor o a rich account o how students actua thin andact, Susan D. Bum discovers two cutures that exist, oten uneasi,side b side in the cassroom.Reing extensive on interviews conducted b students with students,
My Word!
presents the voices o toda’s oung aduts as the museabout their dai activities, their chaenges, and the meanings o theircoege ives. Outcomes-based secondar education, the steep ris-ing cost o coege tuition, and an economic cimate in which highereducation is vaued or its eect on uture earnings above a ese:These actors each have a roe to pa in expaining wh students mightpursue good grades b an means necessar. These incentives havearisen in the same era as easi accessibe was to cheat eectronicaand with amost intoerabe pressures that resut in man studentsbeing diagnosed as cinica depressed during their transition romchidhood to aduthood.However, Bum suggests, the rea probem o academic dishonestarises primari rom a ac o communication between two distinctcutures within the universit setting. On one hand, proessors andadministrators regard pagiarism as a serious academic crime, anethica transgression, even a sin against an ethos o individuaism andoriginait. Students, on the other hand, reve in sharing, in mutipic-it, in accompishment at an cost. Athough this boo is unie toreassure readers who hope that increasing rates o pagiarism canbe reversed with strong worded warnings on the rst da o cass,
My Word!
opens a diaogue between proessors and their studentsthat ma ead to true mutua comprehension and serve as the basisor an aignment between student practices and their proessors’expectations.
